About Hilltop Alliance

Hilltop Alliance is structured as a collaborative organization comprised of community-based organizations from the following eleven South Pittsburgh neighborhoods: Allentown, Arlington, Arlington Heights, Beltzhoover, Bon Air, Carrick, Knoxville, Mount Washington, Mount Oliver City, South Side Slopes, and Saint Clair, as well as Mount Oliver Borough. As an umbrella organization, the primary goal of Hilltop Alliance is to connect neighborhood-based organizations and leverage their individual efforts, creating a shared vision and voice for the Hilltop, thereby preserving and creating Hilltop assets. Our mission is to preserve and create assets in the Hilltop community through collaboration and coordination of resources.

In 2007, a deliberative democracy process involving a wide-range of South Pittsburgh Hilltop stakeholders examined the assets and challenges facing Hilltop neighborhoods. As an outcome of this discussion, in 2008, four Hilltop organizations (Allentown CDC, Carrick Community Council, Hilltop Economic Development Corporation, and Mt. Oliver City/St. Clair Block Watch) formally came together to collaborate on improving the quality of life across the Hilltop. In 2009, Hilltop Alliance began operations (incorporation 3/29/2009), adding the Beltzhoover Civic Association as its fifth member. The Alliance was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2010.  In 2012, Mount Washington CDC and South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association were added as members.
