We Can Help You At Jeremiah’s Place

Jeremiah’s Place is a safe haven for families who are experiencing a crisis or emergency and have no other safe or affordable resources available.

We are a nonjudgmental, trauma informed, child-centered facility with a caring professional staff and committed volunteers who provide a loving and safe environment for all children and families utilizing our services. All our services are voluntary, confidential, and offered free of charge. We provide everything your child would need for a safe and happy stay. There is no need to pack diapers, wipes, formula, food, toys, books or clothing – it is all at Jeremiah’s Place.

CATCH Project

Pediatric residents from UPMC Children’s Hospital work with Jeremiah’s Place families, providing in home support to determine needs and services.

It’s incredibly hard to verbalize how appreciative I am. Leaving my children with anyone is hard and I don’t do it often – it’s awesome to know that when I need to get something done or be without my children it is possible.

If you need a loving safe and secure place your child, bring them there. If you’re scared and need time to work things out, bring your children there. Love is there. Kindness is there. Comfort is there.

I’m a single mother of two young children. I brought my children there for the first time recently. It was a huge relief to know that my children will be safe and taken care of while there. The staff is super nice. I didn’t feel any sort of judgement. My children had fun! I think they even took a nap while in their care!
