Founded in 1957, ACTION-Housing, Inc. is a Southwestern Pennsylvania based nonprofit that serves our community through a number of programs centered on the provision of decent, safe, and affordable housing.
Real Estate Development: Improving neighborhoods and providing housing. The properties we develop, own, and manage help some of the area’s most vulnerable populations find safe, decent, and affordable housing.

Family Savings Account Program: We match funds for low-income individuals and families, the family savings account program helps build assets, and create good saving habits.
First Time Homebuyers: Regardless of income level, taking our First Time Homebuyers class will make sure you are better prepared to purchase your own home, a strategy that has been shown to reduce foreclosure.
Homeless Families Services: For people facing homelessness, our homeless family services provide a range of referrals to help get you back on track.
Homeowners Energy Efficiency Loan Program (HEELP): A great way to cut utility bills and save money even further, we help procure very low interest loans for people who already completed the Weatherization Assistance Program.
Mortgage Assistance Program: Our mortgage counselors have worked with thousands of people who were facing foreclosure, or were worried that they might face foreclosure, to try to keep those people in their homes.
MyPlace Youth Program: Every year, we help young people who have aged out of the Foster Care System bridge the gap to a self-sufficient life.
Sustainability: Our broad range of environmentally friendly programs reduce energy use, and lower utility bills. These programs include Sustainable Real Estate Development, and The One Stop, a technical assistance program for multifamily affordable housing owners looking to reduce their utility usage.
Weatherization Assistance Program: For over thirty years, we’ve provided free weatherization modifications to improve energy efficiency, reduce heating and electric bills, and make the home a more comfortable place to live.
