The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh is a HUD-certified housing counseling agency with a wide variety of programs. Our Housing Department is funded through federal, county and city housing grants designed to help stabilize the current housing situation of residents in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. The department also runs programs aimed at preventing homelessness, keeping families together and hunger relief.
In the last year, our dedicated staff has helped thousands of families through housing counseling assistance, hunger relief services, reunification, eviction and foster care prevention. If you are in need of any of these services, please read the program qualifications carefully to ensure you have the necessary documentation to allow us to get to work as quickly as possible finding solutions.
