Allegheny Health Network

The Perinatal Hope Program is a unique mother baby recovery program that will provide integrated services under one provider to pregnant women who are dependent on or addicted to prescription and/or illicit drugs, which will lead to better pregnancy outcomes for mother and her baby.  AHN is collaborating with the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh and POWER for this program.

Bethlehem Haven

Bethlehem Haven’s Emergency Shelter has seen a surge in older women seeking shelter and assistance over the past 5 years.  The goal of the Safe at Home program is to help vulnerable women find or maintain safe, stable housing.  Through this program, women can access short-term financial assistance for housing related expenses, receive emotional support or mental health services to deal with the trauma of losing a home, and have access to a health and wellness clinic and pharmacist.

Gwen’s Girls

Gwen’s Girls is establishing a Client Advisory Board (CAB) Council, which will engage 15 girls across three sites and its group home, to serve as the “Voice of the Girls” population.  CAB Council will not only help to shape the direction of Gwen’s Girls’ programming and activities, but will also serve as a primer so that the girls are prepared to engage in additional community leadership opportunities. CAB Council will operate over a nine month period, and use the universally-applicable Seven Habits to guide the learning and leadership experience—tying them to the Gwen’s Girls mission, core service philosophy and four life domains. CAB will also help shape the direction of GG's programming and activities.

Jewish Association on Aging

Funding for the evidence-based "I'm Still Here" program of the Hearthstone Institute which is based on decades of research in the field supporting the positive effects of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities for senior with memory disorders, including environmental design, learning programs, communication techniques, staff training and culture programs.  "I'm Still Here" is an expression of Hearthstone's belief that a person living with dementia IS still there and can experience a high quality of life regardless of their memory loss.  Funds will be used to train 500 staff, 76% of whom are female, and more than 67% of the JAA's residents and clients are female.

Jewish Community Center — Via the Centennial Fund for
a Jewish Future: Year Three of a Five-Year Commitment

In 2014 JWF created a fund through the Jewish Federation Foundation’s Centennial Fund for a Jewish Future to benefit the JCC's Family Place program. Funds will be used for programming to support new families transitioning to parenthood, helping them to build peer relationships and connect to Jewish life and community.

Jewish Family & Children’s Service

Funding for The Families in Crisis Program, which was initiated in the summer of 2016.  This is a two-year pilot project to provide support to a growing number of Orthodox Jewish families in Squirrel Hill experiencing great stress, especially those with concerns about safety, child abuse and intimate partner violence. The program reaches out to at-risk families and connects them with resources in a culturally appropriate manner. Families in Crisis is a partnership of JF&CS and the Aleph Institute, with support from the Women’s Center and Shelter of Pittsburgh.
