Stories of Ordinary Pittsburgh Residents
Who Do Extraordinary Things

Every community has heroes who serve in quiet distinction. Without them, our schools, churches, and families would find it difficult to function and thrive. We are excited to announce our 2015 group of Urban Heroes:

Todd Allen • Oliver W. Byrd • Brenda Gregg • Andrew and Helen Jackson • Herbert V. R. P. Jones
Deloris Livsey • Sean and Loleda Moman • George and Sandra Russell • Joy Satov • Lola Thorpe
Lisa Thorpe-Vaughn • Melissa Wharton

Please join us for their celebration!

Tuesday, September 15 at 6:30

The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

6300 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15232 Kindly RSVP by September 8, 2015 or 412-247-9010

These Urban Heroes and their stories will soon be added to this website.

Our past heroes' stories are not forgotten: 2013 Urban Heroes and 2010 Urban Heroes. You can read and listen to both groups’ stories and purchase Urban Heroes Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on this site. We invite you to be inspired by their stories and either become a Pittsburgh Urban Hero or nominate a deserving individual within your community.
