JFCS’s update on the Ukraine Crisis, how to get assistance and how to help:

Welcome to ISAC

Helping refugees and immigrants thrive in Allegheny County

ISAC is funded by the Allegheny County Department of Human Services.

We welcome your feedback. Contact the Directors Action Line with questions, concerns, complaints or comments about any service we provide.


Helping you access services in Pittsburgh

ISAC is here to help you build your life in Pittsburgh. We can help by connecting you to important resources, services and communities in Allegheny County. We will communicate with you in your language. We will listen to your questions and help you to find answers. See if you are eligible for our services.

Our program client services include information & referrals (with interpretation when needed), service coordination (with interpretation when needed) to assess needs and connect clients to a full range of community connections, and bilingual navigation. Bilingual community workers provide ISAC clients with hands-on short-term assistance to help them learn to access services so clients become more independent.


ISAC is a five-agency partnership headed by Jewish Family and Community Services (JFCS). Partners include Casa San Jose (a program of the Sisters of St. Joseph), Literacy Pittsburgh, Family and Immigrant Connections of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, and South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM). ISAC staff working at partner agencies are experienced in working with the County’s growing immigrant community and the agencies serving them.
