Allegheny County and Pittsburgh transitional housing and shelters.

When facing imminent eviction or homelessness in Allegheny County, several transitional housing programs can be called upon. The non-profits that coordinate these resources will offer both a place to stay for the short term and help families find a new, permanent home to live in. This will only occur after they have obtained some stability with their financial situation.

The programs are wide ranging. Some of the non-profits will focus on veterans, single parents, or women. Others units and resources are available for the general public, provided they meet income limits. If a location is not near you, ask for referrals.

Clients of these transitional homes may receive other support as well. This will usually include a meal, access to job training and career counseling, and general life skills training. Case managers also usually partner with area non-profits and government agencies across Allegheny County in an effort to coordinate services and help people apply for aid. Some of the main places to call in the region can be found below.
