Beginning on Monday, December 8, please visit www.pittsburghgives.org to donate to Chartiers’ Hestia Program.

Donations can be made using Mastercard, Visa, or AmEx.
In Chartiers’ Hestia Program, staff proudly provides housing and support to chronically homeless individuals and families who are experiencing a chronic mental illness. Currently we are serving 86 individuals and families by providing them with their own apartment/house in the community and in-home support and treatment. Before they came to us, some were literally living on the streets.
We’re honored to be one of 30 agencies serving the homeless who were selected to receive the possible “match” that Pittsburgh Gives will provide. Funds received through the Pittsburgh Gives campaign will help furnish a new apartment for a homeless consumer using community resources like the local thrift stores and the Dollar Stores. When you donate to Chartiers’ Hestia Program your donation can buy:
$10 buys toilet paper, shampoo and soap
$25 buys underwear and socks
$25 buys sheets and towels for a twin bed
$25 buys plates and silverware for a family of 4
