Our Vision & Process
Located in the inner city Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Garfield and East Liberty, Open Hand Ministries is committed to promoting justice in our communities through homeownership.
A ministry of four churches, we respond to social injustice and inequality plaguing our city by providing opportunities for sustainable and affordable homeownership for families in fragile situations. We serve our community by creating community. We partner with like-hearted organizations and individuals, urban and suburban churches, community development corporations, lending agencies, expert trade skill professionals, funding organizations, and other local support agencies in order to equip our families and community for success and homeownership.
What We Do
We help local families become wealth-builders
As they work through debt reduction, budgeting, saving, investing, and mortgage readiness.
We rehabilitate vacant properties
within developing areas, transforming them into safe, sound, energy-efficient, and affordable houses for our families to purchase as homes and investments.
We remain in
helping our families thrive in homeownership, wealth-building, and life. They set goals, and we reach them together.
