Hope for All

image description

"Hope for All” is a collaboration between YWCA Greater Pittsburgh and the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh that improves the quality of life for vulnerable children, adults, and families in the Pittsburgh region by reducing barriers to resources. Using TheBenefitBank ®, an online tool developed by Solutions for Progress, Hope for All opens doors to work support benefits such as medical assistance (Medicaid), food assistance (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or  SNAP), and low-income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP) for struggling individuals and families. Hope for All offers free tax preparation, assistance with PA property tax and rent rebates, and help with student financial assistance (Free Application for Federal Student Aid FASFA).

Utilizing a coordinated system of resource referrals between partnering agencies, Hope for All is able to respond to emergency and basic needs, and help families access state and federal work support benefits and financial education assistance. Hope for All services are available throughout Allegheny County.

Hope For All is supported by the United Way of  Southwestern Pennsylvania  Impact Fund.
