Children’s Home & Lemieux Family Center

Part of the Children’s Home in Friendship, the goal of the Lemieux Family Center is to support and nurture families during the difficult process of transitioning from hospital care to life back at home.

Designed to be a home away from home, the Lemieux Family Center lets families spend one or more nights in a private bedroom with their child where they can practice providing care on their own. Each room is equipped with an emergency call system that offers the security of knowing that help is available within seconds if needed.

Family spaces and children’s play spaces are located throughout The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center. Whether they are a patient, visiting a sibling, visiting Child’s Way, or meeting a new brother or sister for the first time, children are meant to feel welcome and at home. An Austin’s Playroom is situated at the center of the family living area.
