Neighborhood Resilience Project 


Each year during the Annual Conference, CSTE partners with a local organization to highlight the great work happening in the community and give back to the city hosting us. This year, we are thrilled to partner with the Neighborhood Resilience Project, an organization inspired by the American Civil Rights Movement with a mission to support the transformation of neighborhoods from Trauma Affected Communities to Resilient Healing and Healthy Communities through Trauma Informed Community Development. 

Serving thousands of Pittsburgh residents every year, the Neighborhood Resilience Project provides: 

  • Community support programs (emergency food pantry, document recovery program, backpack feeding program and clothing pantry) 
  • Health and well-being services (free health center, micro-community interventions, trauma response team and community health deputies)  
  • Leadership development programs (training trauma responders, training cohorts from across the nation in the framework) 

Through 2023, the organization supported more than 21,000 people through 3,500 volunteer hours.
