Who We Are
Genesis of Pittsburgh is a social service agency dedicated to providing life-affirming programs and services to pregnant women, children, and adoptive families.
Genesis of Pittsburgh was established and incorporated in November 1973 as a hotline service for women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. In 1978 Genesis opened its first center providing counseling and free pregnancy testing.
It soon became apparent that the greatest need for the young women Genesis served as housing during their pregnancies. The residence, Genesis House, opened on June 1, 1983. Since that time, more than 1,300 young women have found shelter, counseling, and care at this unique facility.
Many of the young women who found themselves at Genesis House ultimately made the difficult decision to place their babies for adoption. At that time, Genesis worked with outside adoption providers to facilitate this service for the birth mothers. In 1991 Genesis of Pittsburgh became a licensed adoption and foster care agency in Pennsylvania, providing domestic, primarily infant, adoption services for birth parents and adoptive families.
