Support the Immigrants and Refugees of Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has a long and proud history of immigrants settling here and contributing to its success, making it a city we all love. Continuing in this tradition, we have seen a huge outpouring of support from residents recently concerning our immigrant and refugee populations. Many people have asked Vibrant Pittsburgh how best to give back and contribute to our tradition of being a welcoming city. Below is a list of local organizations who support and aid immigrants and refugees in our area and how best to donate to them. Because the desire to help has been so strong, most of these organizations do not currently have a need for volunteers, but monetary donations are greatly appreciated.
