About Holy Family Institute
8235 OHIO RIVER BLVD, PITTSBURGH, PA 15202, US
In the rich tradition of Catholic social teaching and rooted in the heritage of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, we empower children and families to lead responsible lives and develop healthy and meaningful relationships built on faith, hope and love.
Holy Family Institute provides help, healing, hope and support to children and families in western Pennsylvania. From alternative learning environments and career training, to families in need of support and counseling - including help with addiction, alcoholism and other debilitating problems - Holy Family is here. In 2012 alone, more than 11,000 families and children were able to improve their lives with the help of our donors and volunteers.
The families we serve often have experienced significant trauma in their lives and need caring and support in order to heal. For this reason, Holy Family maintains a trauma-sensitive culture by utilizing The Sanctuary Model throughout our programs and services. Sanctuary gives a common language to our leadership, staff and clients so we can create an environment that is safe so that healing can occur.
In order to accomplish our mission to serve children and families and crisis, we work to generate funding for our programs and collaborate with community leaders and organizations to tap the best resources available to serve them. We provide care within the community to ensure that families have all the tools they need to thrive, with easier access to the resources they need to establish personal responsibility and stability.
