PLEASE HELP HEARTH
Show your Holiday spirit – please help HEARTH! Treasure House Fashions is proud to link arms with our sister agency HEARTH, an agency that provides transitional and permanent housing for homeless families who have experienced domestic violence. This past year the Allegheny County Department of Human Services (DHS) refused to recognize HEARTH as a victim service provider and is withholding over half a milllion dollars in funding from HEARTH (Click HERE for background information). To threaten the stability of an agency with a 20-year track record of empowering families is unacceptable!
DHS is definietely on the NAUGHTY LIST!!
HEARTH has provided the support and educational component to allow these vulnerable families to gain economic independence for lasting empowerment. Here’s action you can take on HEARTH’S behalf.
- Contact local, state and federal officials to enlist their support to rectify this situation. Encourage them to talk with Vicky Gill at HEARTH to gain accurate facts (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- SPREAD THE WORD – there is power in numbers and our community needs to speak out for the vulnerable families affected.
- Donate through Pittsburgh Gives on December 8th starting at 8AM (Click HERE on December 8th at 8AM to donate). Search HEARTH (North Hills Affordable Housing) to have your donation of $25 (or more) matched. Matching funds of $200,000 are available for agencies addressing homelessness and are depleted quickly…please donate early!!
WHY? Because ALL deserve a safe home for the Holidays!!
