“I was at my lowest several years ago when I moved from Washington DC to Pittsburgh. I knocked on the door of Hosanna House and I asked for help. Not long after, Mr. Randy walked up to my house and knocked on my door. Hosanna House needed a lifeguard. Would I like the job? They trained me, helped me get my certificate, and every day I touch the lives of so many people teaching them to become better swimmers, better human beings. Hosanna House allowed me to become a better person and it is my prayer that I can help others in the same way.”

Certified Lifeguard

Hosanna House is more than a building. It’s care, for people who need it. It’s connection to critical resources and services. It’s the energy of hope as people move forward. That’s Our House. Join us and let’s build a house that’s big enough for all of us. Make Our House Your House.

“For more than 30 years, Hosanna House has been one of the largest African American serving organizations in the State. So it is tempting to slow down, to focus on what we have already accomplished. But that is not the Hosanna House way. Our Board, staff and volunteers are more committed than ever to looking ahead, to finding solutions to those societal challenges that continue to plague our urban neighborhoods and that threaten the security of the families we serve. Join us as we look towards the next 30 years and beyond.”

Leon E. Haynes III Founding CEO
