Great News for HEARTH!
HEARTH is honored to be one of the first recipients of Allegheny Financial Group’s Good Neighbor donation. HEARTH plans to use the donation by helping our clients create healthier lifestyles. This includes purchasing exercise equipment, workout DVDs and screens, and books on healthy lifestyles. We will need volunteers to provide access to the exercise room and teach classes, so if you would like to get involved in this project, please call Vicky Gill at 412-366-9801 x13.

SIDELINES Success - Thank you!
A BIG THANKS to HEARTH’s Associate Board and their guest bartending skills at Sidelines in Millvale this past Monday night. Together, they raised nearly $1,000 for the agency. Great work team!
In the News
Shaler-based organization offers help for single mothers
For single mothers in need, HEARTH's HOMES program has been providing a helping hand up for nearly 20 years. “We like to say we provide a hand up, not a handout,” said Vicky Gill, HEARTH communications and community outreach manager.
Halloween for HEARTH families
The Youth Group of St. John Neumann once again hosted a Halloween Party for the families of HEARTH and what a party it was! The kid's guessed the number of candies stuffed in a jar, painted pumpkins, bobbed for marshmallows and even guessed which "body part" was hidden in a bag. A great time was had by all. HEARTH would like to thank the Youth Group for all their hard work!
HEARTH is reaching out to the community requesting a donation of two computers that can operate Windows 7 and Office 2010.
If you or someone you know can donate a computer, please contact our Development Manager at (412) 366-9801 x12.
