Homelessness is not what it appears

HEARTH was featured in this week’s Post-Gazette issue in response to their series on homelessness. HEARTH board member and volunteer Barb Smith submitted a powerful letter to the editor. In it she highlights the importance of transitional housing.

The 5 Browns documentary comes to Pittsburgh and addresses domestic abuse

On Thursday, August 1, a very important documentary, The 5 Browns: Digging Through the Darkness, will have its Pittsburgh Premiere followed by a Q&A with the film’s Producer and Director Ben Niles.

The 5 Browns follows siblings and Julliard-trained pianists, The 5 Browns, who were on top of the world after three #1 records and appearances on 60 Minutes, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and more. But beneath the surface of their success loomed a terrible secret: their father, who managed their careers, was responsible for years of sexual abuse against the three sisters. Long before #MeToo, and well aware that their story would devastate their family and possibly the group, the young women bravely spoke out. The 5 Browns follows the siblings’ search for healing through the transformative power of music.

HEARTH feels that this documentary is very important piece of community information.

We are encouraging people to attend because it shows another facet of domestic abuse and we are hoping it can serve as an insight for people to learn how to support those coming through trauma.

The film is being shown at – Waterfront 22, 300 West Waterfront Dr, Homestead, PA at 7:30 PM
