Please have him/her call Allegheny Links at 1-866-730-2368. That is the best first step for a person who is homeless to get connected to the resources he/she needs. If the person would like to talk with someone in person, please direct him/her to the Mission located at 10 E. North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.
We suggest you do not offer to cash to those who are panhandling. It is entirely up to you, but be advised that this money can be used to purchase items you might not want to provide to the individual such as drugs or alcohol.
Light of Life serves breakfast and dinner 365 days a year, so you are welcome to direct the person to the Mission, located at 10 E. North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.
Some individuals can stay on track after rehab, by utilizing support systems such as AA or NA which are group meetings designed to support people at all levels of recovery. Others need a longer-term recovery environment. Light of Life Rescue Mission has recovery programs for single men, single women and women with children. Not all but most of the clients in our programs have experienced long term addiction and are in need of a supportive, sober environment where they can begin to explore the issues in their life that have led to addiction, and often, homelessness. There are other residential programs available. We can share these resources with you, along with the Allegheny LINK system phone number.
