Every dollar and every moment of volunteer time is a community investment that promotes healthy and productive relationships. There are many ways you can make a difference in someone’s life:

Make a one-time or recurring donation
Every donation helps us ensure over 7,200 individuals and families can meet their basic needs, build their personal assets and be valued members of their community each year. You can make that difference today through our secure donation site or by mailing a check to CHS at PO Box 7549, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
