Evolving to Better Serve the Needs of our Community
In 1988, our founding core of
volunteers developed the
agency because there was a
need in our community to
help single women with
children experiencing
homelessness.
When HEARTH moved from
Benedictine Place to
HEARTH HOMES in 2013,
the agency expanded from serving 15 families to 20. A
community need was
recognized and HEARTH
evolved to meet that need. And
in 2015, after 20 years of
“opening doors to families in
crisis”, the agency recognized
that a majority of the families
the doors were opened for, were
victims of domestic violence.
Clothing Pantry
COVER
So we have once again evolved
in order to better serve the
community and fulfill a need so
desperately needed by our
Garden
Food Pantry
secure location, with 20
single family apartments
on site at HEARTH
HOMES, the families
who come to us are
surrounded by a safety
net that allows them to
begin picking up the
pieces. At HEARTH, the
families become
HEARTH Store
independent and
self-sufficient, enabling
them to end the cycle of
dependence and abuse.
The families have the
use of resources such as
a clothing and food
pantry, a sports court, a
garden, and a
Playground
playground. They have
on-site staff
support, community support
through our non-profit
partners, and access to a
wonderful school district.
Program Participants
and their families. We
are constantly evolving at HEARTH, and
will continue to
evolve so that we will
always be serving our
families to the best of
our ability. In a safe,
HEARTH evolves because our
families need us to. We know
that each and everyone of you
will also evolve as the agency
continues to meet the needs of
families in crisis, now and in
the years to come.

Direct Energy presents
HEARTH held a 20th Anniversary Reunion for our former Program
Participants and their families on Saturday, August 1, 2015. So much fun
was had by all that now they’d like to have one every year!
Volunteers from KFMR came to HEARTH for a “Done in a Day” project,
helping paint the meeting room on the 2nd floor. It looks brand new!
The Girl Scouts made welcome baskets for our incoming families, wrapped
birthday gifts, decorated for the holidays, took down decorations after the
holidays, wrapped more birthday gifts, finished their garden and definitely
so much more!
St. John Neumann Youth Group once again held a “spooktacular”
Halloween party for the families at HEARTH October 2015.
The Norwin Show Choir performed their hearts out at HEARTH at the
annual Holiday Party. Of course a Holiday Party isn’t complete without a
visit from the man in the red suit!
WBN raised more than $1,000 for HEARTH at their Holiday breakfast.
WYEP held the Alternative Souper Bowl for HEARTH on Super Bowl
Sunday with one of the largest turnouts in it’s 16 year history.
Job Corp came to HEARTH and helped organize the food pantry with all
the food collected from the Alternative Souper Bowl.
While guest bartending, HEARTH’s Associate Board watched the National
Championship game at Sidelines in Millvale, raising nearly $900 for the
agency.
Purses and purses and more purses ... OH MY!
The temperature wasn’t the only record breaking occurrence on
Saturday, December 5, 2015! In its sixth year, the 2015 Purses with a Purpose
was the best one yet for this sell out event!
Thank you to The Art of Wine & Food Contributors Continued ...
This year’s Direct Energy presents Purses with a Purpose
grossed more than $43,000!
Thank you so much to everyone for the continued support you provide to this
wonderful event. Helping to raise awareness for families who are survivors of
domestic violence experiencing homelessness.

Reed Smith LLP Presents
On Wednesday, September 30, 2015, guests gathered to taste incredible food and sip delicious wine all while
raising funds for families, who are survivors of domestic violence and experiencing homelessness.
This year’s event
Grossed nearly $47,000!
And what an incredible night it was.
VIP guests began arriving at the Children’s Museum at 5:30 p.m., where they received preferred parking. They
were greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres as they entered the Studio, enjoyed special wines for the next hour as
The Skipper Johnson Band played in the background.
When the doors opened at 6:00 p.m. for guests Steel City Memories (sample photos above) began capturing the
night as guests were suddenly transported to the beach, to Paris, the pyramids in Egypt and much more. The night
was topped off with an incredible silent auction to bid. Of course, HEARTH representatives spoke to everyone
thanking and reminding them of the importance of their participation to help our families become independent
and self-sufficient.
