Safety Inspections for Seniors

Trained Safety for Seniors volunteers with Open Your Heart to a Senior conduct a brief but thorough FREE home safety assessment using a written checklist making recommendations for family members to adjust/remove potential hazards. They install smoke alarms (if needed) and leave seniors with a bag of safety items, like a flashlight and fresh batteries, a bath mat, night light and other helpful items. After the check has been completed seniors qualify for either a free grab bar or an indoor railing installed at no charge. For information, please contact Cathy Pschirer 412-307-0069 at North Hills Community Outreach.

Donate your vehicle to Community Auto: working families are waiting to purchase a car!

It’s New Car Season. Are you purchasing a new vehicle? Consider donating your old vehicle in ANY condition to Community Auto, a program of North Hills Community Outreach. Community Auto accepts vehicles in any condition, has them repaired, and sells them at below market value to local working families who need them to get to work. Last year 43 families purchased cars from Community Auto, and 100 more cars were sold at auction to support our program. You could change a life and get the maximum tax deduction. FREE pickup, towing and notary! Call 724-443-8300 or visit
