City of Pittsburgh
Sustainable Home Improvement Partnership

Many veteran, senior and disabled homeowners struggle to maintain their aging homes on a fixed income.  Generously funded by The Home Depot Foundation, the Sustainable Home Improvement Partnership (SHIP) repairs and weatherizes the homes of veterans, seniors and disabled residents in collaboration with local nonprofits and citizen volunteers. Military veterans are the priority focus for the initiative, which secondarily aims to improve the homes and lives of seniors and disabled residents. The first-ever collaboration of its kind, SHIP allows low-income homeowners access to a variety of services at once.

SHIP is a joint effort of the Office of Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Pittsburgh Partnership for Neighborhood Development, The Home Depot Foundation, and the following agencies: ACTION-Housing Inc., Hosanna Industries, Nazareth Housing Services, NeighborWorks Western PA, Pittsburgh Community Services, Inc., The Pittsburgh Project, Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, and Three Rivers Center for Independent Living.
