Providing warmth this winter

Anna is one of the hundreds we’ve served in our Winter Warming Station since we opened in January, She had stood in line half-hour before our doors opened. Once inside, she promptly asked for two things: shoes to replace her sandals and the restroom? She asked if she could go first because she had a job interview in an hour and hadn’t been able to clean her face yet.

People from all backgrounds and stories come to our doors in Downtown Pittsburgh, but they all share two things: A desperate need for safe daytime shelter and a reminder of their worth. Meanwhile, Catholic Charities has a desperate need for volunteers to help us deliver both.

Volunteers serve coffee and snacks, organize and distribute winter clothes and provide companionship.

If you’re vaccinated against COVID-19, 18 years or older, please consider joining us.

We provide the training; you provide the willing heart. Together, we’ll serve those on the brink of losing hope.

To volunteer, email kslate@ccpgh.or​g. We offer three-hour shifts, seven days a week.
