The Pirates are the rage in Pittsburgh this summer and are well on their way to their best season in 20 years.

But they’re not the only winning story in town.  The players will do just fine regardless of the team’s success.  For many others in Pittsburgh, however, getting ahead hinges on receiving help.

ACTION – the Allegheny Council to Improve Our Neighborhoods – is an organization that offers such help.  It provides access to decent and affordable housing to enable low-income people to become more secure and self-sufficient.  ACTION also offers support services, an asset building program, and educational and employment opportunities.

Check out the array of development projects the organization is undertaking across Pittsburgh.  Learn more about its recent work to revitalize the Uptown neighborhood.
