About Us

Welcome to Kidsburgh! More than a decade ago, a group of community leaders, child advocates and educators in Pittsburgh had a big dream: If they collaborated and innovated together, the Pittsburgh region could become the best place on earth to raise a kid. We envision a world where every child grows up safe and cared for, with opportunities to learn and create.

Kidsburgh serves local families and caregivers with deliberate goals in mind: to help them discover the many resources for children in our region and to offer solid reporting and expert advice about the challenges of raising healthy, thriving children.

Each week, we publish original stories and content designed to inform and inspire parents and caregivers as they navigate our city and their daily lives. We also collaborate with our media partners to deliver a wide range of news about everything from learning and child development to arts, culture, health, wellness and much more.

We also feature a robust calendar that lists kid-friendly events throughout the region, as well as directories of child-serving organizations and school districts.

Kidsburgh is deeply committed to and will continue to purposefully discuss and deepen our knowledge, understanding, and commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, inclusion, and antiracism. We strive every day to do better and to be better at fostering an authentic sense of belonging for all.

Kidsburgh operates as a project of Grantmakers of Western PA.
