Young people and their families should have easy and frequent access to innovative learning and play spaces, community resources that support their well-being, and celebrations and cultural events that delight them — all designed with kids in mind.
We are committed to helping Pittsburgh become the best place on the planet to be — and to raise — a child. Doing this requires a wide and varied group of community resources and cultural institutions that embrace families. Playgrounds and playing fields, museums and libraries, performances and festivals —together, these assets provide new opportunities, experiences, and joys. We also know that children learn best when their basic needs have been met, so we support organizations that attend to the health, safety, and well-being of children and their families.
