Pittsburgh's Women's Center and Shelter ('WCS") had been located since 1994 in a converted three story 38,000 SF former automobile showroom in the North Oakland neighborhood. WCS sought $12.5 million in NMTC allocation to make necessary improvements that resulted in an expansion of the shelter to 48 beds from the existing 36, enhance living spaces, administrative areas and therapy resources, while enlarging the facility's children's areas and creating shelter space for pets, along with updating security and safety systems, parking and storm water systems, and updating building systems to be a LEED certified building.
