and Other Resources
The Brashear Association has consistently demonstrated an ability to respond to the changing and diverse needs of South Pittsburgh's multicultural, multigenerational community.
Brashear's strength is attributed to its small, adaptable, professional staff's ability to identify and work seamlessly as a respected, trustworthy partner and convener in the community. In this way, the organization effectively maximizes its resources, expands its scope of services, and fills service gaps.
Brashear's solid reputation of providing service excellence for more than 100 years has made it a sought-after partner among others who are working toward solutions to community challenges. Brashear regularly shares its experience and expertise, along with its centrally located facilities, in support of a number of community initiatives. Staying in touch with the pulse of the communities it serves through meaningful dialogue with a host of active South Pittsburgh groups helps Brashear maintain its timely response to community needs.
