expanding opportunity & improving lives

To Neighborhood Allies, achieving impact means the lives of residents are improving. It means that our partnerships are creating healthy neighborhoods of opportunity and our collective resources are moving low-income Pittsburghers up the socio-economic ladder. It means a more just and inclusive society where all can participate and reach their full potential and that we can progress toward equity for and with communities. Impact means that we are able to successfully accelerate, scale and sustain community development solutions that Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods deserve, desire, and need. To ensure that community ownership and economic opportunity are the core of our work, our on-the-ground initiatives center around bringing the technical, human and financial resources together to co-power residents to revitalize, co-design, and own their future. Here is a glimpse at progress made in 2021:

Revitalize Neighborhoods

Our approach to neighborhood revitalization work is centered around co-creating resident-focused solutions that impact affordable housing, small businesses, and placemaking efforts. We believe genuine revitalization only occurs when both a geographic place and its people see positive change.

 

Foster Economic Opportunity

Our Economic Opportunity programs enable and position individuals and families to take transformational actions and have access to the knowledge and support they need to achieve long-term, sustained financial health and well-being.

Build Capacity

Recognizing that societal and organizational problems are complex, our Capacity Building work builds connections across our programs, as well as with external partners to address the issue and help create solutions from all angles. By doing this, we help to build the skills and increase the know-how of community organizations and residents to do their best community-serving work.

Advance Equity

Our commitment to equity is grounded in being a leading change agent of equitable growth for the Pittsburgh region, which starts both in our own organization and in the neighborhoods we serve. The highest ideals of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) are core to who we are and all that we do.
