Description: Welcome Home is a temporary emergency shelter located in the heart of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.  We offer a clean, safe place to stay for families and single women experiencing homelessness.

Welcome Home offers 30-60 days of emergency shelter and provides temporary respite for homeless families and single women.  Located in downtown Greensburg, Welcome Home can accommodate four families and ten single women at any time. In addition to providing basic needs, Welcome Home also offers life skills classes from other community providers on various topics like cooking skills, budgeting and home management.
The shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, and offer case management services to our guests Monday through Friday.  In addition, we also offer on-site behavioral health counseling services for all interested individuals. While we offer house food for individuals without the ability to acquire their own, individuals that are able through SNAP and Foodbank assistance are encouraged to secure their own food and prepare their own meals on-site.
Each year Welcome Home assists an average of 250 women, children and men who find themselves homeless in Westmoreland County.  Annually we provide approximately 7,000 shelter nights annually.

Monday, March 8, 2021Worst situation on top of my own situation. I will NEVER come back.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.

If you have pictures of the shelter, I will upload them on this page. Please email me with the name of your shelter and the pictures to: HomelessSupport@gmail.com
