House Of Life - Pittsburgh

We are a non-profit, post incarceration re-entry center located in the Pittsburgh area. The journey from disenfranchisement, resentment, retaliation, incarceration and despair, to survival, contrition, redemption and ultimately service will be manifested in the House of Life - Pittsburgh.

Every human being needs purpose. The self-esteem bestowed from working toward that purpose is priceless. The House of Life’s talented re-entry members have the opportunity and skills to serve the community by mentoring and assisting other citizens re-entering society from incarceration.  As every day passes, society and other returning citizens miss out on the contribution they can make toward rehabilitation, productivity and public safety. Now is the time.

Our donors can deduct contributions they make under IRC Section 170. The next phase of our plan involves raising funds in order to purchase the initial piece of property to develop into a re-entry center. The vision is to purchase a modest building capable of housing three returning citizens and a project manager.
