55 Days of Giving #GIVE55

Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute has been helping to heal & educate for 55 years!  To commemorate this, we are calling on you to help us raise over $55,000 during the 55 Days of Giving #give55 campaign from the anniversary date September 13th to November 6th, 2019 in any amount.

The need for accessible, affordable, and holistic care is undeniable. Donations help to support the maintenance and growth of services and programs sought by our community.  Our neighbors, friends, colleagues, families, and congregations are reaching out today more than ever to find support, to find well-being, and to heal.  In a world surrounded by rising costs, there are areas where we sometimes struggle. One of our greatest areas of need is to help reduce and/or eliminate client debt.  Individuals and families seeking services face increasingly higher co-pays and deductibles even with health insurance. Your support will help to ease the burden placed on both our clients and the organization. 

The therapists at the Institute have been helping to heal our families, friends and neighbors in and around Pittsburgh for decades and the mission remains the same since 1964. Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute exists to enhance the health of individuals, families, and communities through an interfaith ministry of counseling and education that integrates the resources of faith and the behavioral sciences.

Your support will make a difference.
