Catholic Charities on KDKA's Pittsburgh Works

This coming winter, households are expected to pay ~17.2% more for home heat, compared to a year ago, which translates into a two-year hike of 35%+ .

  • Those who heat with natural gas can expect increased costs of ~34%.
  • Heating oil is expected to jump 12.8%. 
  • Those whose heat runs on electricity can anticipate a 7% hike. 

No matter the increase, it’s too much for many of our neighbors in SWPA already struggling with increased food and housing costs. 

Catholic Charities has launched a $1 million fundraiser between now and the New Year to address urgent need and help position individuals and family for long-term stability.

Meeting Need. Strengthening Lives. Building Stability.
