History
Auberle was founded through the legacy and generosity of Pauline Auberle, a McKeesport resident, who upon her death willed money and land to the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh to start a "home" for boys. In 1952, Pauline's dream took place when Auberle opened its doors at 1101 Hartman Street in McKeesport, PA.

Auberle was once known as the “Boystown of the East.” But since the late 1980s, Auberle has grown into new service areas. Today we offer programs for girls, adults and families - as well as a wide range of prevention and community based programs. From our start as a residential facility, today more than 60% of our clients are served in their home, school or in their community.
