Achieving Self-Sufficiency

Smart Investments

For a woman experiencing a life-changing event like an accident, illness, domestic abuse, or unemployment, the financial impact can be devastating. What began as a single incident can quickly turn into crisis, leading to bankruptcy, eviction, and even homelessness.

Smart Investments was developed by SHIM, in partnership with North Hills Community Outreach, and Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh, with funding from United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, to help women in crisis throughout Allegheny County. Small grants can help ease a specific crisis, like utilities in threat of termination, or an eviction notice.
