Since 1900, children and families in our community have benefited from the work of Holy Family Institute.
Holy Family Institute provides help, healing, and hope to children and families throughout Western Pennsylvania.
We pioneer alternative learning and career training environments, offer mental health and substance use counseling, and help families address debilitating financial limitations. You can always find us in the schools and neighborhoods with the most need. In 2018 alone, more than 35,000 families and children improved their lives with the help of our donors and volunteers.
The families we serve have often experienced significant trauma and need caring and support to heal. For this reason, Holy Family Institute maintains a trauma-sensitive culture throughout our programs and services. We provide care within the community, giving families the tools they need to thrive, the resources they need to establish stability, and the support they need to live responsibly.
To fund our mission of serving children and families in crisis, we collaborate with community leaders and organizations. We also depend on generous donors and volunteers to further our mission of service through Holy Family Foundation, our separately incorporated fundraising entity.
