We welcome volunteers who enjoy cooking to come once a month or even once every other month to bring a meal or cook a meal at one of our two residential group homes. We like the cook (or cooks) (you can come with a friend) to share the meal with the household, sitting down and joining us at the table. If you want to bring your own child with you for this activity, we can work with that. We have up to 8 residents in each house - all bright and talented girls who work hard to excel academically and otherwise. One house is in Baden in Beaver County and one house is in Clinton in Allegheny County.
About Girls Hope of Pittsburgh
1005 Beaver Grade Rd, Coraopolis, PA 15108, US
Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become women for others by providing value centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.
Girls Hope provides a well-balanced, nurturing home and quality education through college for academically capable girls. We serve children between the ages of 10-18 who are at risk due to poverty, neglect or harmful neighborhood conditions.
We give girls a foundation for success by addressing their basic needs and providing enriching opportunities that build confidence and self-esteem. Our focus on academic achievement through college creates a strong foundation that builds a future of hope and opportunity for our girls. Our full-time house parents and other staff serve as role models by providing guidance, discipline and love, instilling values, and encouraging respect and compassion.
Founded in 1990, we were the first Girls Hope established in the U.S. and a model for developing other Girls Hope programs across the nation. We provide two stable, family-like homes, each accommodating eight full-time residents, while also serving as a home base for several Girls Hope college students.
Girls Hope of Pittsburgh provides services and employment in a nondiscriminatory manner without regard to an individual's race, color, sex, age, religious creed, national origin, ancestry or disability.
