Sisters Place programming works to fill resource and knowledge gaps that will intervene and break the cycles of poverty and homelessness.
Our programming encompasses four service pillars, the foundation that our core programs are built upon:
- Empowerment: supporting clients with meeting basic needs
- Housing: supportive housing to provide stabilization, safety and support
- Wellness: mental and physical health as well as substance use support and referrals
- Advancement: resources for GED prep, college, trade school, apprenticeships, workforce development and more
We believe that support needs to be available when families and individuals begin to experience insecurity in meeting basic needs. Interventions with those who are impoverished may prevent them from experiencing homelessness.
According to the 2021 U.S. Census, 20.2% or 56,205 Pittsburgh residents live below the poverty line.
