This organization is one of Pittsburgh's finest nonprofits. They have a documented track record of effectiveness and a reputation for excellence in everything they get involved with, especially in mentoring. I appreciate that they are very partnership-minded and stick to what they do best: camping, after-school programs, youth mentoring, and family programs. My encounters with them have always been professional and courteous. When we need an organization to go the extra mile for an underprivileged child or family, this is who we turn to.
