I am a eight year volunteer with this organization that provides a safe place for children after school hours, on Saturday and camping experiences during the summer. Sarah Heinz provides recreational,STEM,leadership, homework help and mentoring for children from several school districts in Pittsburgh,Pa.
My son,Lawyer , attended ten years at Sarah Heinz. Sarah Heinz help develop him into the man he is today. I give praise to this organization,club leaders,and the volunteers who had impact on his life. Lawyer is now a teacher and is involve with children that live in his community.
I really can't express in words how much Sarah Heinz House has changed lives. Being a member at Heinz House has given many opportunities to become someone. Sarah Heinz House has become many people second home and second family. At Sarah Heinz House you feel safe and welcomed when you step through the doors. I will never be able to thank this organization enough for all they have done for me. They teach the real meaning of happiness, to take risk and step outside of comfort zones. Sarah Heinz House has given me long-lasting relationship. The staff and members have inspired me to go out and change the world. If it wasn't for this great organization I would not be where I am today. This organization has helped me find out who I am. Sarah Heinz House offers so many programs such as dance, swimming, robotics, leagues, cooking classes, sewing, and so many more. I would find myself at Heinz House from 3:30 till 9:00 everyday, volunteering, hanging with the staff and members, catching up with my friends, and making new friends. When your apart of Sarah Heinz House you feel something so great you just never want to leave. I grew up at Sarah Heinz House, and I couldn't be any happier. When your having a bad day this organization is always there to cheer you up. Most people feel very well appreciated at this place and that's not something you get to feel everywhere. Sarah Heinz House has brought unimaginable joy to life. I feel like a better person every day because of this amazing organization. I am so grateful I am apart of something not every kid gets to be apart of. At Sarah Heinz House I have made so many memories that will last a lifetime. My future started with Sarah Heinz House and so can yours.
This organization and its programs are indispensable to our region's youths. It has a rich history and a team of leaders who possess high integrity. Outstanding role models for young people.
Sarah Heinz house is a great asset to our community. Not just recently, but over the last many years! I hear wonderful stories from my aunts and my mother, who all went to the Sarah Heinz house Camp when they were little, some of them over 50 years ago! I've been to a few fundraisers there, as well as have seen the way that the kids are excited to be involved...I can't wait to enroll my children in the Sarah Heinz House programming someday!
I could never thank this organization, and the people inside of it, enough for how much of an impact they have had on my life. This place gives every member an opportunity to learn something new, a safe environment to take risks, step out of their comfort zone, step in the spotlight, take that leadership role, and unlock their potential to grow into responsible and mature individuals. There are so many different activities to take advantage of SHH that it is hard to find something that wouldn't catch your interest. From swimming, to dance, to sports, to robotics, to art, to hanging out with friends, to playing games, to media lab, to working on your education, and to positive youth development programs SHH really tries to make sure you can have a taste of it all. I know that for several of my peers, and myself included, Sarah Heinz House quickly become our second home. We were able to create a small family, separate from our ones at home who understood and could relate to how much they loved attending Sarah Heinz House. I would find myself at SHH from right after school at 3:45 until 9 at night, going in and out of programs or trying to catch a few moments to talk to my friends. Sarah Heinz House is primarily responsible for inspiring me to continue to work with children after I graduate. The staff and volunteers have left a memorable impact on me, one that I only hope to have the privilege to make on another person's life. Sarah Heinz House enabled me to figure out who I was, to develop my leadership skills in an area I felt comfortable and has given me opportunities that I would never have been able to take advantage of had I not been a member. This organization is truly one of the most affordable, influential, safe, diverse, and amazing places I think that the northside of Pittsburgh has to offer for children in grades 1-12th. And this review only scratches the surface of the dynamics of what life with a membership at SHH has the potential to do to you.
Sarah Heinz House has touched four generations of my family. From my grandfather who served in WW1 , my mother, myself, my siblings, and to our children.
It has always and still is a huge part of my life, I am proud to carry it forward with a passion to serve the next generation to experience and benefit all the organization has to offer. Where else can a child come 6 days a week and swim, play, laugh, learn, lead and just "have fun".
I have been a part of Sarah Heinz House for over 20 years. I should really say that Sarah Heinz House has been a part of me for over 20 years. As a member, it gave me confidence when I needed it most and allowed me to meet some truly amazing people, many of whom I am still friends with today. As a volunteer of SHH, it allowed me the opportunity to give back to a great organization that offered me so much. I am forever a "Heinz Houser"!
I was a member and volunteer here for many years, and SHH impacted my life positively in many ways. It promotes strong character, good values and allowed me to form many long-lasting relationships. It truly is a wonderful place for youth. In fact, I am honored and proud to share the tradition with my children who participate in the tot programs and plan on enrolling them as members when old enough. It is much more than an after-school program, it is a second home!
Sarah Heinz House has opened their doors to provide our students an amazing learning environment during the school day. Their team has been very welcoming and accommodating to our school staying true to their philosophy of serving the youth above all else.
A great organization!
I am proud to be associated with this organization for over 30 years. I can honestly say that it has and continues to mold me into the man I am. As a member I gained so much from the programs, friendships and mentors the "House" provide me with. As staff I still continue to benefit from all Sarah Heinz House has to offer. I feel as though I have come full circle... As a child I came and learned from the adults and now as an adult, I come to learn form the kids!
I've recently became involved with Sarah Heinz House Association due to me being the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Pirates. There are many great things I could say about them, but the one that hits home with me is the environment and opportunities they provide our local youth. They have a great, clean, safe facility and endless programs to support our youth throughout their adolescent years.
