About Hosanna House, Incorporated

In the early 1990s, Hosanna House was able to purchase the abandoned Horner Middle School, located on Wallace Avenue in the heart of Wilkinsburg. In 1996, Hosanna House, Inc. - Wilkinsburg Community Center of Western Pennsylvania officially opened its doors. Through community funding and the help of more than 500 volunteers, this 4-story, 125,000 square foot building was completely renovated over an 11-year period from 1995-2006. In 2003, the Sherwood Event Center property was acquired to meet the need for summer recreational programs. This property is a 14-acre facility featuring a large swimming pool, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Sherwood is also available for public rental on weekends and during the week after 5:00 pm. The rental income is used to support Hosanna House's programs and services.   "The first 20-years of Hosanna House were like a rocket launching, rising away from the ground, but not having arrived at our destination. Now we're ready for the second stage to take us to our ultimate destination."    

Today, Hosanna House impacts the lives of over 35,000 people each year. On any given day, as many as 1,000 community residents come into the center to receive or deliver services. Within Hosanna House you will find quality health and human services.
