Benet Woods

HEARTH at Benet Woods is a $2.8 million development that provides attractive, permanent, affordable rental housing below market rate for working individuals and families who earn between $25,000-$38,000 annually


Benet Woods is the first permanent affordable family housing development in Northern Allegheny County, located on Rodenbaugh Road in Ross Township, adjacent to HEARTH’s previous location at Benedictine Place.

An investment in the community

HEARTH at Benet Woods offers the opportunity for families to thrive financially; it allows for families to remain in the same community, and for children to receive a quality education in a reputable school district. Its residents can become engaged in a community as invested citizens, voters and taxpayers. Families can live in a safe, attractive home, in a convenient location near transportation and shopping. Residents can utilize the property amenities and the community benefits from the additional revenue generated by the property taxes.

HEARTH at Benet Woods is a partnership between HEARTH and Trek Development.
