Lemieux Family Center
In 2007, The Children's Home of Pittsburgh became The Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center in recognition of the ongoing and substantial support provided by the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
This addition signifies the importance of family at the center of our mission and is physically represented through the many family spaces throughout the building and outdoors, including portions of our large family living area and Austin's Playroom for siblings.
The Lemieux Family Center includes living spaces that allow for special family time and create a sense of home and comfort for the children and families we serve.
Family spaces and children’s play spaces are located throughout The Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center. Whether they are a patient, or visiting a sibling in our hospital, or visiting Child’s Way, or meeting a new brother or sister for the first time, children are meant to feel welcome and at home in our building.
An Austin’s Playroom for siblings is situated at the center of the family living area.
Natalie Lemieux graciously donated a Liliput play house for children to explore as part of the outdoor playgrounds located in the spacious back yard of The Children’s Home & Lemieux Family Center.

Playgrounds include accessible swings, jungle gyms, and play equipment for children at Child’s Way, patients in our hospital, and their siblings.
