The Partnership Network


The Partnership Network (TPN) is a coalition of nonprofit intermediaries committed to taking bold action in response to worsening regional wealth inequities. Collectively, TPN members coordinate comprehensive community development strategies focused on:

  • Capacity Building
  • Employment & Small Business
  • Home Ownership
  • Land Ownership & Use

Partner organizations include Neighborhood Allies, NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania, New Sun Rising, Grounded Strategies, and Omicelo Cares.

Goal of the Program

Collectively, TPN’s goal is to eliminate systemic inequalities through a more effective ecosystem of service delivery and resident empowerment.

What We Provide

TPN members, and as a collective group, work at both the organization and resident-level with a commitment to being people-centered in their work. In order to achieve this goal the members have agreed to implement the following practices which are critical to how they will manage their intra-network relationships and expectations:

  • Aligning resources
  • Creating transparency
  • Articulating shared outcomes

How to Engage

To continue making progress towards our goals, TPN is seeking the following support:

  • Aligned partners. We want to improve strategic partnership to create a stronger network and increase ladders of opportunity. 
  • Community strategies. We seek to promote community revitalization strategies that work to eliminate barriers of inequities and inequalities in the Pittsburgh region. 
  • Resources for communities. We seek to share information, resources and relationships that improve outcomes for the underrepresented communities and residents.
