Achieving Self-Sufficiency

Support for Refugees and Immigrants

The South Hills is home to the largest community of refugees in the Pittsburgh region. SHIM is committed to providing support for these families who have settled in the United States to make a better life for themselves. Programs for refugees include Immigrant Services and Connections, in addition to programs for our whole community that benefit refugees like the SHIM's Prospect Park Family Center, Youth Mentoring, Early Childhood Program, After School Program, Ruling Our eXperiences and more.

Immigrant Services and Connections (ISAC)

ISAC assists refugees and immigrants in accessing existing services like shelter, education, healthcare, and legal support in Allegheny County. As one of six sites in the multi-agency partnership coordinated by Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh, interpreters are available to enhance communication.
