As the Healthy Neighborhoods Celebration approaches, Neighborhood Allies would like to recognize all of its award nominees for their vital work helping to create strong, healthy neighborhoods.

Neighborhood Allies’ Annual Healthy Neighborhoods Celebration was created to serve as a platform to honor and lift up the people and organizations who are working hard everyday to build healthy neighborhoods across Pittsburgh. While the annual event formally honors just 6 people and organizations (meet our 2018 awardees!) we would be remiss if we did not recognize all of the truly impactful work that is happening every single day in Pittsburgh communities. In 2018 alone, we received over 70 nominations for awards, representing 40 organizations and individuals who are all graciously dedicating their, time and passion to making neighborhoods better, safer, and stronger. We want to thank all of our nominees for continually helping us to create strong, healthy neighborhoods across the city. You are greatly appreciated.
