What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

SHIM's mission is to mobilize community resources and implement sustainable programs that compassionately help our neighbors meet basic needs, achieve self-sufficiency, and build community. SHIM's goal has always been to provide effective services that meet current community needs. SHIM aims to adapt programs to better serve the South Hills community through diligently evaluating and anticipating evolving needs to better serve the South Hills community. SHIM is increasing awareness and amplifying impact, to establish itself as a regional leader and partner in social services provision through strategic public communications. SHIM will also improve its capacity to capture and share impact data with constituents. SHIM will improve our organizational infrastructure and professional culture by recruiting skilled employees and improving employee experience and retention. This will increase the efficiency and impact of our programs.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Direct Assistance

SHIM's Direct Assistance programs help to meet families' basic needs. Families in crisis reach out to SHIM for help when they find themselves without food, clothing, heat, household supplies, school supplies, etc. We recognize that our goal of family self-sufficiency requires that families have access to these important items. SHIM offers the following types of assistance: food distribution, clothing distribution, seasonal assistance, back-to-school, winter coats, utility assistance.

Families

SHIM's Family Support programs are designed to provide families with the resources and education needed to succeed. The staff of our Family Support programs work intensively, one-on-one and in groups, with individuals and families to help them identify their goals and overcome any obstacles to achieving those goals. SHIM's Family Support programs include: Family Support Center, Early Childhood Program, Summer Camp, After-School Program, Youth Mentoring, WorkAble Employment Support, Home Visits, Referrals, and other Supportive Services.

Population(s) Served

As an interfaith organization, SHIM is committed to serving as a conduit for local congregations and their members to put their faith in action. We welcome the active participation of faith communities in our programs and also organize two annual events that promote interfaith understanding: Interfaith Thanksgiving Worship Service Interfaith Holocaust Observance.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In the spring of 2012, SHIM planted a small garden at its Bethel Park office that produced more than 1,500 pounds of fresh produce for SHIM's food pantries. In 2021, the SHIM Community Garden Program has 15 gardens, managed by local groups in the faith community, day care centers, schools, senior living communities and more. On average this program provides over 15,000 pounds of fresh produce on a yearly basis that benefits over 4,000 individuals that are food insecure. SHIM is not only focused on feeding people, but feeding them healthier food options.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

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.
