Beverly’s Birthdays provides birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in need. We spread birthday cheer 365 days a year. Today, nearly one in four children in the U.S. live at or below the poverty line. In Southwestern PA alone, there are nearly 3,000 school-aged children identified as homeless. Children living in poverty often go without the everyday items that we take for granted. Special milestones, like birthdays, are often overlooked because of their families’ personal/financial circumstances. Beverly’s Birthdays enriches the lives of the children we serve by making sure they are remembered on their special day.
Tree of Life Congregation was founded more than 150 years ago, Or L’Simcha about 5 years ago. In 2010, the two Pittsburgh congregations merged to form Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha. As a conservative Jewish congregation, Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha remains true to traditional teachings, yet is also progressive and relevant to the way we live today. From our warm, inviting and intellectually stimulating atmosphere to our fun adult, children and family programs, it’s the perfect environment to grow a strong faith rooted in tradition. p>
Sisters Place is a supportive housing community committed to assisting single parent families who are homeless in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Sisters Place, Inc. was founded in 1993 by the group now known as the Catholic Sisters Leadership Council (CSLC) of Western Pennsylvania as an outgrowth of their interest in serving the poor in our community. Because of their extensive experience with this disadvantaged population, the sisters recognized the critical need that many impoverished families have for stable housing and supportive services as they work to make lasting, positive changes in their lives. Our mission is to assist families toward self-sufficiency by providing housing and supportive services. Sisters Place has helped 345 families. 90% of our participants move from homelessness into independent living
