The Union Aid Society is Here to Help

The mission of the Union Aid Society, founded in 1898, is to serve those in need who reside within the Quaker Valley School District. We are the community’s safety net to which people in crisis turn for financial assistance, counseling, advocacy and referral for other social services.

Union Aid’s Executive Director, Sherri Leifman, is a social worker. Critical short-term funding is available for food, clothing, rent, utilities, prescriptions and medical bills, child care and student aid. All services are provided confidentially. In addition, the Union Aid Society owns, operates and subsidizes an affordable 22-unit apartment complex for low-income seniors. These attractive, one-bedroom units are located in the heart of Sewickley Borough within walking distance of shops, restaurants, Sewickley Library, Sewickley hospital, and many other services and amenities.

Finally, Union Aid awards two types of scholarships. The first assists eligible high-school students with the costs of a college education. In addition, we provide grants to qualifying adults 25 years and older who wish to return to school through our “A Step Up” program.
