Grantee Highlight: Hill House Association

April 1, 2011 · by Foundation Staff · Grants News

More than 70,000 people each year seek help from the Hill House Association, a century-old anchor in Pittsburgh’s most well-known African-American neighborhood.

The bustling community center helps them through a mix of early learning and child development, youth, workforce, senior services, and neighborhood development programs. It also hosts 10 other agencies that provide complementary services. The Roy A. Hunt Foundation has supported the Hill House’s after-school literacy programs since 2001.

In 2008, the Foundation awarded one of its largest grants ever, $500,000, to the Hill House to support the renovation of its historic Kaufmann Center. The Center is a community gathering place for residents and civic organizations and over the years has hosted noted musicians, authors, artists and statesmen. The Center re-opened in March 2011 and its outdoor amphitheatre bears the Foundation’s name.
