Helping Families – One Family at a Time

Helping Families – One Family at a Time provide essentials to families in crisis, transitional housing and financially struggling single parents. Although our main collection hub is located at 875 Barnes St., New Kensington, we service families throughout Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. Our service is critical, as many of these families are forced to leave difficult situations with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.

All that said, we are looking for donations to help our families in need.

If you are having Yards Sales, PLEASE consider donating the leftovers to us!  Simply make arrangements with us to come pick your leftovers up in advance of your sale. You just leave your donations out for us. If you have large items or a lot to donate, we have a donation form for you to use with your taxes.

Cleaning your closets out, Call us!! We will make arrangements to come pick it up!

Are you or a loved one moving, downsizing or getting ready to list a property? We can clean out the house for them. We can take only what they put aside or take everything. If the cleanout is to sell the home, we will clean the property as part of the deal. We have a lot of experience with Estate Cleanouts and preparing houses to list.  Simply call 412-426-0559 to arrange for pick up!

Of course, tax deductible monetary donations are always welcome. Please make checks payable to Parnassus Area Partnership with Helping Families on the memo line. You can drop them off at the hub or mail it to the address for Parnassus Area Partners below.

We also have a Helping Family Resale Store at 878 Fifth Avenue, New Kensington. The hours are Thursday thru Saturday, 12 noon to 6:00 pm. All proceeds from the store are used to support Helping Families – One Family at a Time activities.
