Child Health Association of Sewickley

In 1923, three women organized to provide fresh milk to undernourished Sewickley school children. How could they know that over 85 years later, the charitable society they formed would come to allocate over $3.7 million for children’s programs and services throughout Western Pennsylvania? As a forerunner of volunteer action in Pittsburgh, the Child Health Association of Sewickley, named Outstanding Philanthropic Organization in 1997 by the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of Fund Raising Executives, has grown to be a noted funding source of child-related charities in Western Pennsylvania. We are an all-volunteer organization with approximately 60 active members and a caring constituency of over 150 associate members. Last year alone, our volunteers logged nearly 10,000 hours working toward Child Health’s mission of nurturing the WHOLE child by supporting programs and services that directly address children’s emotional, educational, physical and recreational needs.
