Western PA Community of Hope

The Western PA Community of HOPE has been awarded $5,000 through the Small and Mighty grant program of The Pittsburgh Foundation. Small and Mighty grants are part of the Foundation’s 100 Percent Pittsburgh organizing principle and awarded to organizations with operating budgets of less than $600,000. The Western PA Community of HOPE operates with an annual budget of $85,478 and is one of 18 nonprofit organizations receiving funding.

This Wilkinsburg-based nonprofit is committed to creating an environment where children, young adults and families are encouraged to make healthy choices. Programs include academic help, social support and life skills training; summer camp, community service and family and community gatherings; and connecting families to additional services. This operating grant will support the organization as it serves at least 20 more children, raises funds, establishes communication guidelines and finds a new space.
