The Pittsburgh Project Christmas Party 2018

TPP Christmas Party 2018

Thank You to everyone who attended our Christmas celebration!

Our theme for this season is “Reimagine.” Our mission and vision is rock solid, so we don’t have to reimagine it. Our homeowners and communities are already here, so we don’t have to reimagine. Everyone loves Pittsburgh, and yet we can imagine it being better. We are reimagining what it would be like if, in the next few years, we worked on one thousand homes. If one thousands kids came through these doors and experienced the love of Christ. We are not about just programming: we are about giving one thousand futures. We come to work for them every day. We thank you because we are able to share your love. We will be here in the new year serving the same God, doing new works.
— Wayne Younger, Executive Director

October 30th's Roast of Grant Oliphant Postponed

Dear Friends,

          In light of the tragic events of this past weekend, and the need of our city to focus on healing and developing a path forward, the Board of Directors of The Pittsburgh Project, in agreement with our event committee, has decided to postpone the “Servant Leader Celebration: Roasting Grant Oliphant,” scheduled for October 30th, 2018.

           The vision of The Pittsburgh Project, adapted from the Jewish prophet Zechariah, is our hope for our city: “That Pittsburgh will be called a City of Truth, where once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets each with cane in hand because of age, and where the city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” This echoes true today, as we look for opportunities to unite and heal alongside our neighbors.

        The event will be rescheduled to Wednesday, January 16th, 2019.

Respectfully,

Wayne Younger,

Executive Director, The Pittsburgh Project

"...a better person and a better Christian:" A Letter to Mama Jean

This week, one of our homeowners, Mama Jean (Mary Wright-Daffin), shared this letter from one of God's developing servant leaders. The writer worked on Mama Jean’s home in our community as part of our Summer Service Camp.

Community members like Mama Jean are at the core of our mission and vision. More information about homeowners like her, and how you can get involved, can be found within our Home Repair Ministry.
