Neighbors helping neighbors

Thousands of our South Hills neighbors struggle with hunger, poverty and making a better life for their families. At the same time, just as many step up to help. This is the power of South Hills Interfaith Movement. Join the movement.

How can we help you?

Food & more

Food, clothing, and utility assistance.

You & your family

Support programs for children, families, and individuals.

Our community

Interfaith initiatives, community gardens and more.

Ways to help others

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

Together, we can do anything.

To say these are tough times is an understatement. But every difficult challenge we’ve undertaken, we’ve been able to accomplish because of you. Rather than face the continued increase in need with fear, we are unwavering with hope. Because in tough times, the South Hills comes together.

Let’s be social
