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.

Please join us to combat hunger and hopelessness with food, clothing, employment assistance, and a lift up to a better life.
