They’ve served our country and now they’re ready to serve our local community with the same passion and commitment to making a difference and improving lives!

Frontline Families represents an exciting collaborative opportunity through the Points of Light Institute, Pittsburgh Cares and AmeriCorps. It is geared specifically towards military veterans, current service members/reservists, and their families. Pittsburgh Cares will train these dedicated individuals to serve as volunteer team leaders  – and we will provide them with all of the tools and resources necessary to lead volunteer groups at a wide variety of service projects throughout the community. In order to learn more about Frontline Families, please contact Danielle Frank (dfrank@pittsburghcares.org) or Bonnie Taylor (btaylor@pittsburghcares.org). Interested Veterans and Military Family Members can also register here to reserve a spot in our upcoming training class.
