Welcome to the South Hills Interfaith Movement: Neighbors helping neighbors

Right now in the South Hills, hidden in plain sight among our community’s beauty, are people struggling with poverty, hunger, and building a better life for their families. Which is why the South Hills Interfaith Movement invites you to join us and help our neighbors in need. Currently, we’re serving more than 4,000 of our neighbors. But there’s much more work to do.
