Kinkead secures $60,000 DHS grant for local trauma-focused nonprofit

Funding will be used to support operations and services

BRIGHTON HEIGHTS, Aug. 31 – State Rep. Emily Kinkead, D-Allegheny, has secured a grant through the Department of Human Services for Infinite Lifestyle Solutions, a nonprofit group based in Brighton Heights.

The $60,000 grant will be used to support the operations and services Infinite Lifestyle Solutions provides, focusing mainly on prevention and intervention services for children who have experienced trauma. The organization works to provide a supportive, nurturing environment for these children and to develop trauma-sensitive communities.

“The services Infinite Lifestyle Solutions provides are vital to developing strong communities for children who have experienced trauma at such a young age,” Kinkead said. “I’m proud to support organizations like this one and help secure state funding so they can continue to provide the resources necessary to help kids overcome hardship.”

“As the traumatic gun violence continues to rise across the city of Pittsburgh and the state of Pennsylvania, we would like to thank state Rep. Emily Kinkead for securing a state grant of $60,000 for Infinite Lifestyle Solutions. This will allow us to reach more families who have been impacted by these tragic events,” said Cecelia Ware, Executive Director of Infinite Lifestyle Solutions.

Kinkead said Infinite Lifestyle Solutions has been making a difference in children’s lives since 2016, offering restorative practices and family programming services in the greater Pittsburgh and Braddock communities.
