Drive-Thru Halloween!

On Friday October 23rd, our staff hosted our first-ever “Starter/Prep Drive-Thru Halloween” for our 1st-4th grade members!

Participants took photos in front of our green screen with our Media Lab Coordinator Amelia who then turned those pics into amazing compositions, Healthy Choices Directors Hannah and Yas led an amazing obstacle course on our blacktop, and everyone took home lots of candy!

Keystone Positive Action

This fall, Keystone Club members from Sarah Heinz House (SHH) attended the Northeast Regional Keystone Conference in Delaware. As part of SHH’s commitment to Healthy Choices for Life, as well as our implementation of the Positive Action Curriculum ( ) in our programming, members of SHH Keystone Club generated over 250 pledges from peers attending the conference and at SHH promising to stay “drug-free.” We’re proud of the Keystoners who represented us at the conference, both for their commitment to healthy choices and for their leadership!

Bulletin – February 2019

Sneak Peek:

Each Program Year, during the month of February, the members of Sarah Heinz House take time to consider others, raising funds and awareness for a fellow non-profit or neighboring organization. This year, our minds, hearts & focus will be with The Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha Congregation in Squirrel Hill.

In the wake of the horrific anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue on October 27, 2018, Sarah Heinz House members have chosen to honor and remember the victims of the attack by choosing the organization to be the recipient of this year’s Campaign of Others.  By assisting and supporting the victims’ families and helping rebuild the Tree of Life Synagogue we hope to show that Pittsburgh and Sarah Heinz House are “Stronger Than Hate”. Learn more about the Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha Congregation at

Many exciting fundraising activities are scheduled to benefit the Campaign for Others. In the bulletin is a schedule of programs including dates, times, and fees for many of this month’s events. Take comfort knowing that by participating in the fun and exciting activities, you are providing resources to benefit other kids and community members.
