When I moved to Pittsburgh, I was referred to Union Project as a place to volunteer. The staff were very kind in both finding meaningful things for me to do and to introduce me to other connected people in the community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Its ability to consistently bring together people from all walks of life for both fun and personal growth.

Volunteered and attended the Rib-Off, an event that was so well attended that they sold-out of ribs just past the mid-way point of the event. The organization seems to excel in motivating the local community to participate and attend its events, and the Rib-Off was no exception. The quality/value of the event was pretty strong.... areas for improvement would be in re-structuring the relationship with the participants to ensure ample supply of food for the event, and to slightly increase prices of ribs to help generate more $.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

several events, including both UP and external functions.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

take a critical look at pricing/fees structure for events, services, etc. to make sure the UP wasn't leaving money on the table without compromising community driven mission.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its personality and its commitment to mission.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, driven, committed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

complete the building renovation, purchase equipment that would ease the burden of running events that had similar needs, start/bolster an endowment to augment salaries/wages of key staff/employees.

Ways to make it better...

they didn't run out of food.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

balancing sustainability with servicing the community through its multiple business units.

One thing I'd also say is that...

keep on keeping on.

I love how Union Project is an organization that brings together historic preservation, art, social enterprise and coffee under one roof! I was inspired when I walked into the Urban Fusion Cafe and heard great music and conversation. I also loved walking around and reading the bulletin boards and picking up literature about local non-profits, arts organizations, forums, etc. The building itself was spacious and the stained glass art work was beautiful, even more so when I found out that they have a Glass Action program where they restore glass art on-site. Based on my first impression, Union Project fulfills its vision for being a catalyst for neighborhood redevelopment and historic preservation.

The Great!
