Community & Economic Development
We fund initiatives that 1) assist individuals and families in the Hill District, Uptown, and West Oakland to transition from poverty to self-sufficiency, and 2) contribute to community vibrancy and quality-of-life. Priority will be given to:
- Workforce development that links training to family-sustaining jobs. Youth employment initiatives that introduce young people to careers and foster a strong work ethic.
- Business incubators that support emerging resident-owned businesses and link entrepreneurship to market opportunities, resulting in job growth and wealth-building.
- Evidence-based initiatives that help families address the key barriers to self-sufficiency.
- Neighborhood initiatives that enhance community aesthetics and cultural vibrancy.
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh (RTP) provides critical home repairs for low-income seniors, veterans, and residents who have disabilities. RTP addresses health and safety issues that homeowners are unable to mitigate on their own. McAuley Ministries invested in RTP to provide repairs to 48 homes in the greater Hill District.
