Genesis House Testimonials
I lived there while pregnant with my daughter. I was at a low point in my life. Genesis saved my life. They help you get your life back on track. Staff was amazing, house was beautiful. They teach you so much. The classes were so informational. Today I have my own apartment, my daughter is beautiful and healthy, and with what Genesis has taught me I feel confident with life.

I lived there when I was pregnant with my first daughter, and they were absolutely a blessing. We had a beautiful home with great resources and great staff that made you feel at home and welcomed. I honestly have good memories of that place at such a low point of my life.
This program changed my life. I am due February 13 with my son. When I came here I was at rock bottom lost everything…Since then with the help of the staff and residents who are like family now, I have a new house as of next week. Blessed with baby things. Learned to love myself again and not be co-dependent on a man…I love you all and never will forget you Miss Kathy, Miss Carol, Miss Louise, Miss Andrea.
I lived at the Genesis House while I was pregnant with my first son, Ryan. I was at one of the lowest points of my life. I was homeless, pregnant, afraid and trying to overcome a lot of personal issues and struggles. They helped me through everything while I was pregnant and also helped me to get on me feet after giving birth. They were amazing. There are no words that can describe how grateful I am for them. Without them I wouldn't be where I am now- the proud mother to two beautiful boys, back in college, in a healthy relationship and happy with myself. I am so thankful for the women of Genesis and everything they do.
I lived here when my entire world was flipped upside down. I was afraid and lonely. This house changed my life.
I lived at Genesis about 3 years ago. I was pregnant, homeless, and had no true source of income. I was also new in recovery and therefore needed a lot of support and encouragement. Genesis helped me in so many ways. First and foremost, they put a roof over my head, but they were also very caring and willing to do anything to help as long as I was also willing to do anything to help myself. The parenting center prepared me so much for a newborn and instilled techniques and characteristics in me that continue to make me a good mother today. I am now 2.5 years clean, employed full time, have my bachelors and excited for the future! My daughter just turned two and I know if I walked into The Genesis Center tomorrow needing help I would be greeted with open arms. Donating to Genesis of Pittsburgh doesn't only help a pregnant woman in need, it will also greatly affect the life inside her and how mother and child relate and interact with each other for a lifetime. Honestly, I hope one day I can give back to them for all they did for me and my daughter.
