Supportive Housing

Over 25 years ago, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh initiated the country’s first transitional housing program for women dealing with abuse and homelessness. Today, we work through Allegheny Link to provide rapid re-housing and transitional housing to help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency.

Allegheny Link provides information on services to help individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life.

Allegheny County is one of the counties that have moved to code “yellow” as of May 15th. Following Governor Wolf’s directive, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s operations remain largely remote. Our Early Child Development Center, with locations at our Homewood-Brushton Center and Propel Braddock Hills is now open. YWCA’s staff is working remotely to continue to provide important services to our community. Please check our website frequently for service updates and to sign up to be a friend of the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.  For a list of local resources, please follow this link.
