Home : About Us : TeamWe work hard. We have fun. We are passionate about what we do. We are inspired and honored by the work we get to do alongside community members and partners throughout Allegheny County. We believe change starts with one person, one idea, and one’s ability to see it through. We know that the work is more meaningful when it is done in a spirit of partnership and collaboration. We believe that a lot of small efforts collectively lead to big change but the first step is taking ownership of an issue in order to find solutions. We believe the process of improving places is an economic driver and nothing is wasted unless we allow it. We believe that community development is tough, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. The Grounded Strategies team is a family comprised of our staff, board members, Ambassadors, and partners.
