Family & Workforce Development
The Hill House understands that strong individuals make strong families and strong families make strong communities. The program supports individuals in their efforts to be better parents, have more rewarding work experiences, and build a stronger family life. Individuals ages 16+ in all life circumstances—young parents, non-custodial parents, out-of-school youth, single mothers, job seekers—are offered rewarding, life-enhancing experiences.
Family & Workforce Development program participants have access to:
- Parenting Life Skills Training
- Career Assessment and Goal Planning
- Job Readiness/Job Search Training
- GED/ABE Preparation
- Customer Service Training
- Financial Planning and Budgeting
- Building Self-Esteem/Self-Concept
- Domestic Violence Workshops

Family & Workforce Development will launch the First Source Center during the second quarter of 2009. The center assists Hill District residents with securing employment opportunities connected to the creation of the 28-acre hockey arena complex, grocery store, and other CBA (Community Benefits Agreement) related projects.
The Hill House works with the National Fatherhood Initiative and the Father’s Forum to enhance fatherhood programs in Pittsburgh.
