About PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh: A program designed for military veterans, service members and their families to aid them in connecting with resources in the greater Pittsburgh area. The PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh program is hosted by Pittsburgh Mercy, bringing a comprehensive system to coordinate services for those who have served in the military. Regardless of discharge status, if you have served in the military or are the family member of someone who has served, you may qualify for resources in the community.
The PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh staff are veterans themselves and therefore have a unique understanding of how difficult it can be to transition from military to civilian life or determine what benefits are available twenty years after service. Services coordinated include applying for VA benefits, Education, Financial Assistance, Healthcare, Housing, Legal, Social Activities/Meeting Fellow Vets, Mentoring, Sports & Fitness, and Spouse and Family Support. If you or a veteran you know could benefit from services please call 1-855-838-7744.
Who We Serve
Active duty, National Guard, Reserve Service members as well as veterans, service members and their families who reside in the Greater Pittsburgh area are eligible for support from the network. We aim to support all individuals who have worn the uniforms of our military – regardless of age, era, branch or discharge status. Not all services are available to every member however, our Care Coordinators will strive to find an appropriate local resource.
AmericaServes is a coordinated network of services, resources, and care, that provides direct access for veterans, service members, and their families. AmericaServes consists of local and regional networks that are tailored to meet the unique needs of the communities they serve. PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh is the local AmericaServes network for the Greater Pittsburgh area. Each local AmericaServes network consists of vetted service providers, that are connected together through a Coordination Center – a backbone organization that supports the local network by understanding each provider’s services, capacity and eligibility requirements, and facilitating accurate referrals for network users to receive the services they seek. This means that veterans, service members and military families are connected to providers who understand their unique situation, and provide the services they need, and that providers are able to refer veterans and military families they are unable to serve to the care they need without taking on the time burden associated with linking to another provider or following up. The grand vision of AmericaServes is to establish local networks all around the US such that veterans and service members can receive care and services wherever they are, through a single point of entry into a national network of hundreds of quality providers.
