Counseling Program

While every counseling experience is unique, the team at Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute (PPI) seeks to provide an empathetic relationship in which individuals and families can safely and freely discuss their challenges and concerns in a holistic context carefully considering the mind, body, and soul in therapy. This is also a "person-centered" process in which the client determines the areas of exploration and discovery. Spirituality, religion, and/or faith can also be explored throughout discussing personal growth, self-awareness, and meaningful relationships in life. PPI welcomes individuals and families seeking services without discrimination of age, color, ethnic origin, gender, disability, race, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation. PPI's Clinical Team of licensed behavioral health professionals is diverse in expertise, background, and approach. Clients and therapists are matched as closely as possible by PPI's Intake Team, taking care to respect your interests and needs.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
