New Location Provides More Space For Growth
In March, South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM) moved the home of its Family Center to the Wallace School Building in Baldwin.

The site provides double the square footage and is more accessible to the larger community, allowing SHIM to reach more neighbors in need.

“We opened the Family Center in the apartments at Prospect Park 11 years ago, and we’ve continued growing to meet the community’s needs since then,” said Courtney Macurak, director of programs, SHIM. “The new building will allow us to reach beyond the Prospect Park community and connect with even more of our foreign-born and native neighbors who might need our resources. We are so glad to be able to continue to grow to help meet the needs of our entire South Hills community.”

SHIM opened its offices at the Wallace School Building on March 7, 2018, but has been running tax preparation services in the new space since January. The majority of SHIM’s programs, including youth mentoring, women’s group, counseling and more, have officially moved to the new space.

SHIM’s Prospect Park food pantry will remain at the old location, and the organization plans to maintain limited office hours in Prospect Park to assist with minimal needs such as printing out forms, making phone calls, faxing items, etc. Additionally, SHIM’s early childhood program will continue at Prospect Park until the end of May.

“The new space will allow us to do so much more,” Macurak said. “Our mentoring students will have more space for activities; our staff and community will be able to have more privacy for personal conversations and therapy sessions; and we’ll be able to expand on so many programs to accommodate interests and needs.”

SHIM’s Family Center at the Wallace School Building can be reached at 412-885-0284. The building, owned by the Baldwin-Whitehall School District, is located at 41 Macek Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15227. The SHIM Family Center is partially funded by the Allegheny County Dept. of Human Services.
