SHIM's mission is to mobilize community resources and implement sustainable programs that compassionately help our neighbors meet basic needs, achieve self-sufficiency, and build community.

Born nearly fifty years ago as South Hills Interfaith Ministries by, no kidding, a priest, a rabbi, and a minister, SHIM has been providing food, clothing, and services to people in need in Pittsburgh's southern suburban neighborhoods ever since. Faced with unprecedented new levels of suburban poverty, SHIM is expanding its work to include more neighbors helping more neighbors in need. Together, with teams of dedicated volunteers, donors and partners, we're working to reduce the devastating effects of suburban poverty among the working poor, unemployed, families, single parents, senior citizens, women, and the high concentration of refugee families in our service area.
