Head Start Program

  • Providence Connections (PC) is pleased to partner with Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) to offer preschool and pre-K slots in the District’s Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program, a state-funded initiative that provides services to children between the ages of three and five.

    To participate in the program at PC, all District guidelines listed below must be followed:

    • Families must submit a complete Head Start application, including all required documentation. Children cannot enter into the program at PC unless a complete application is submitted.
    • Families must meet income guidelines and other criteria set by the PPS Head Start Program.
    • The program runs from 9:00am to 3:00pm. If you would like your child to eat breakfast at the center, you may bring them at 8:45am and they will be served with the rest of the class.
    • All children must be picked up by 3:00pm. If a child remains at the Center beyond 3:00pm, a $15.00 per day charge will be assessed to his or her account.
    • All children must arrive at the center by 10:00am unless there is a documented reason, such as a doctor’s note.
    • Children must be at least three years old upon entry into the program.
    • Children must be fully potty-trained (no diapers or pull-ups).
    • Children must attend the program a minimum of four days per week unless there is a documented medical reason for them not attending

Providence Connections, Inc. is partnering with Men’s Wearhouse to launch its 12th annual Suit Drive, a month-long initiative that collects gently-used professional clothing for Americans transitioning back into the workforce. Throughout the month of July, donations collected at Men’s Wearhouse stores will be distributed to Providence Connections, Inc. and more than 150 other local non-profit organizations across the country that help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programs and workforce assistance. Over the past 11 years, the Suit Drive has collected more than 2 million items of clothing. 

“It is a privilege to work with Men’s Wearhouse and support men and women determined to move forward professionally,” said Peter Jenkins of Providence Connections, Inc. “Our mission is to provide tools and assistance to Pittsburgh residents pursuing valuable training and career development, and donations from the Men’s Wearhouse Suit Drive help them suit up and enter an interview with the mindset to secure the opportunity they desire.” 

Starting July 1, residents of Pittsburgh can donate their gently-used professional clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes at any Pittsburgh area Men’s Wearhouse. As a thank you, donors will receive 50 percent off their next purchase of regular priced retail items (excluding shoes, clearance, custom and Exceptional Value items). 

Were proud of the role our teams and stores play to lead this important national initiative, said Carrie Ask, President of Mens Wearhouse. “As we enter our eleventh year, we are thrilled to partner with Providence Connections, Inc. to collect more donations than ever before and help men and women fulfill their goals.”

Thank you to Mens Wearhouse for selecting us to be a site for your suit drive donations.  We are also lucky to have our PNC volunteers here helping us organize everything.
