Partner Story: Family House

It is wonderful to see how our PULSE fellow’s growth and hard work is turning into something sustainable.

 

 

 

 

 

Family House provides a special “home away from home” for patients and/or their families who are in Pittsburgh seeking medical treatment. By offering convenient, affordable housing in a home-like environment, Family House reduces the emotional and financial stress for people facing a medical crisis in a city where they may be strangers.

Julia Homa is the Manager of Volunteer Programs for Family House, Inc. In the following interview she talks about the experience of partnering with PULSE.

CC: Why did your organization decide to work with PULSE?

JH:  We heard about PULSE and people who have completed similar programs and it was such a positive experience for them. We also really needed the help but didn’t quite have the budget to on board a full-time employee.

CC: What is the most rewarding part of working with PULSE?

JH: I am able to mentor someone who is growing professionally and that is wonderful since I had so many wonderful mentors in my career.

CC: How has your partnership with PULSE impacted your organization?

JH: We are able to do high level program development since we have the extra person.

CC: What do you like most about your current PULSE fellow and/or other fellows you’ve worked with?

JH: It is wonderful to see how our PULSE fellow’s growth and hard work is turning into something sustainable.

CC: What would you tell other Pittsburgh nonprofits about PULSE?

JH: It is very worth it! I am so appreciative to have the fresh perspective and the extra help!
