At Urban Impact, we're providing options for those who have few or no options.

About Us

It Starts With a Child

It’s a simple philosophy – start kids off on the right path and they will lead us to greatness. Urban Impact is changing Pittsburgh’s North Side one person, one family, one block at a time – and it all starts with a child or young person. We believe that if we impact their lives early on by giving them options and hope for the future, they will become productive members of the community and have a positive, lasting impression on society.
