Brokered / Indirect Services

Brashear Association’s strength is attributed to its small, adaptable professional staff’s ability to identify and work seamlessly as a respected, trustworthy partner and convener of catalytic community groups.  In this way, Brashear Association effectively maximizes its resources, expands its scope of services and fills service gaps. 

The Brashear Association is adept at extending resources through productive working relationships with other providers within the South Pittsburgh communities.  This approach enables many more residents to access a broader range of services while judiciously allocating the resources of all parties.  Brashear Association sites also serve as convenient locations.
