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.

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.

I recently had the opportunity to take an in-depth tour of the Sarah Heinz House Association as part of an article that I was writing. I was completely blown away by every aspect of it. The staff is tremendously talented and caring, the facilities are absolutely beautiful, the programming is fun, interesting, and educational, and the kids and teens were amazing. I wish I had grown up in the area so that I could've gone there growing up! Instead, I'm looking forward to taking advantage of opportunities to volunteer at this amazing facility.

Both of my children, 12 and 9, have been members since first grade. They attend Cyber School. What we were seeking was a place where my children can have social interaction with their peers, but what we received was far more. My daughter is now on the swim team; my son is learning to swim and thoroughly enjoying the robotics class. Five days a week they are in a fun safe environment for a minimal cost. I could not be more pleased with the facility, the staff, and especially the swimming coaches.

It was with great anticipation and excitement the day that I joined the Sarah Heinz House. I'm a senior using the Sllver Sneakers program. I needed to join to continue my physical rehab. The receptioist, Phyllis, was most helpful in handling the paperwork.

Bob Bechtold was attentive to my rehab needs and reviewed the exercise machines with me. This is an excellent facility and a grea addition to Pittsburgh.
