Who We Serve
At ACTION-Housing, we pride ourselves on helping all of our clients to achieve more self-sufficient lives. Since 1957, we’ve assisted a wide array of populations throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania, focusing on those generally underserved by traditional services including senior citizens, veterans, individuals with physical and/or intellectual disabilities, individuals on the autism spectrum, and youths who have aged out of foster care.
Over the years, our work has evolved from limited rehab-for-resale projects within the City of Pittsburgh to encompassing a wide variety of housing and social service programs serving thousands across the region. ACTION-Housing has become a nationally recognized leader in affordable housing development and social services provision.
Whether it be helping to find an affordable place to live, preventing foreclosure on a home, performing weatherization work for low-income households, or simply checking in with a client to see how they are doing, people are the most important part of our work. We take an individualized, caring, and empathetic approach when communicating with our clients and residents; taking time to understand each client’s unique situation and letting them know we are here to help.
