We're proud that our founder Dorothy Richardson (top, left) not only saved her neighborhood when urban renewal plans and discriminatory lending threatened it, but inspired others nationwide with an innovative approach to community development. (Learn more
on our History & Mission webpage.)
We’re fortunate that Richardson and many other women have contributed their time and talents in leadership roles in our organization. Community advocate Aggie Brose (top, right), who co-founded Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation and was a founding member of Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group, served on our Board for 17 years, promoting greater access to homeownership and its benefits. She inspired and mentored many people in our community.
We're grateful for Richardson and Brose’s visionary leadership, the extraordinary women on our staff, and the women who comprise a majority of our current Board, advancing our mission every day.
