About Pittsburgh Mercy Veterans Services
Pittsburgh Mercy offers services to help veterans and their families with problems stemming from addiction, mental and physical health issues, incarceration (jail), and return to civilian life.
PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh Mercy is proud to host PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s first coordinated network of public, private, and non-profit organizations working together to serve veterans (active and former) and their families and third in the growing AmericaServes national network. Launched in October 2015 with $300,000 grant from The Heinz Endowments and headquartered at Pittsburgh Mercy, the PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh network has grown into a community network of more than 62 registered, participating service providers. Our mission is simple. We provide help and hope to veterans and military families located in Allegheny, Butler, and Westmoreland counties.
In its first four years, PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh has assisted more than 5,000 individuals with 13,000 service requests. The volume of requests increased 79% from 2018 to 2019.

Rally Point is a Pittsburgh Mercy program that provides veterans (anyone who has served in the U.S. military) with an opportunity to meet in a supportive group environment. Participants discuss topics that veterans have a unique way of understanding based on their experiences in the military. These topics center around learning how to best utilize the unique strengths that the group members possess as veterans and what it means to be a veteran.
There is no cost to participate. All veterans of the U.S. military are welcome, regardless of discharge status.
