A hot meal and a safe place is where renewal begins

Helping neighbors restore their lives to health and independence

Our doors are always open to those in need


For over 75 years, City Mission has shared Christ, sheltered, healed, and restored the homeless to independent living—without discrimination.
City Mission’s comprehensive program addresses both short-term needs like food and shelter, and long-term needs, including drug and alcohol counseling, mental health and medical treatment, legal aid, and employment training. Our goal is to help each man, woman, mother with children, or veteran who walks through our doors to become a healthy, productive member of society.
With your help, we help our residents renew their lives.


City Mission’s work is only possible by the community and businesses of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s generous donation of time and treasure.
If you, your business, or church would like to be part of bringing hope to those hurting in our region, please take action today.


Renewal has always been central to the work of City Mission. Now, in response to the many new challenges sweeping Southwestern Pennsylvania—increasing homeless populations, an epidemic of opioid addiction, and fewer federal and state resources funneled to existing homeless programs—the Mission is embarking on a 4-year campaign to renew the five pillars of our ministry to the homeless.


Learn about City Mission and Scarmazzi Homes project Avis Arbor Fixer Upper, a special fundraising effort to furnish 12 mother and children suites in our expanded Avis Arbor shelter. Help us provide a safe haven for these homeless mothers and their children. Let’s provide them with practical solutions for getting back on their feet. Let’s give them hope when hope is long gone. And most importantly, let’s show them how God’s caring can transform their lives.
