South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM)

Mobilizing community resources to help neighbors meet basic needs, achieve self-sufficiency, and build community

Right now in the South Hills, hidden in plain sight among our community’s beauty, are people struggling with poverty, hunger, and building a better life for their families. Which is why the South Hills Interfaith Movement invites you to join us and help our neighbors in need. Currently, SHIM serving more than 4,000 of our neighbors. But there’s much more work to do.

SHIM has been providing food, clothing and services to people in need in Pittsburgh’s southern suburban neighborhoods for more than fifty years. Faced with unprecedented new levels of suburban poverty, SHIM is expanding its work to include more neighbors helping more neighbors in need.
