PITTSBURGH -- In the late 1980s a group of volunteers in the North Hills of Pittsburgh recognized a need for housing for women and children experiencing homelessness, with many of these families displaced due to domestic violence.
HEARTH - which stands for "Homelessness Ends with Advocacy, Resources, Training and Housing" - has now been serving families in need in our region for 25 years.
Marisa Williams was hired as the new CEO of HEARTH in 2020, leading their mission and vision into the future.
Williams recently appeared on "Issues on the Point" to discuss the organization's 25th anniversary, how COVID-19 has impacted domestic violence and how someone can utilize the services HEARTH provides.

Watch "Issues on the Point" Sunday mornings at 6:30 on 22 The Point.
