Neighborhood Allies Board of Directors Adopts Bold New Roadmap for Expanding Opportunity Across Pittsburgh Neighborhoods

Leave a Comment

We are excited to share our 3-Year Strategic Roadmap of ambitious goals and priorities between 2021 – 2023.

Our roadmap is guided by our long-term North Star, which states that over the next ten years, we will expand our resources to Accelerate, Scale and Sustain the work of our community partners to create healthy neighborhoods of opportunity and move 100,000 low-income Pittsburghers up the socio-economic ladder.

Neighborhood Allies will lead reinvestment in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. We are dedicated to people, place, and equity. Using our Healthy Neighborhoods Framework, we ensure that we foster neighborhoods of opportunity and social mobility, in service of our most vulnerable populations, and those most at-risk of being systemically isolated and left out from economic opportunities.

Over the next three years we will bring together more people, knowledge, and financial resources to implement our boldest, most ambitious plan in our history. We will seek radical shifts to our norms and traditional systems—systems that have deliberately been structured to leave those who are most impacted out of the decision-making process and that widen the racial wealth gap.

“Beginning today, we will make transformational investments that sustain equitable economic growth and achieve financial stability, especially among our most vulnerable populations. By democratizing development that is people-powered, we will help residents reimagine and rebuild communities with expanded and sustained economic opportunity, high quality affordable housing, and improved mental, social and emotional well-being.”

-Presley Gillespie, Neighborhood Allies President
