Latham Street Commons (LSC) is a living laboratory that focuses on improving the health of all people living in Pittsburgh’s Garfield & Friendship neighborhoods by addressing their social, educational & economic needs. We are building a resilient & sustainable ecosystem of people working together to address all of the factors affecting access to good health — social support, health care, education, diet, employment & connection to nature.
Centered on the idea of integrating food commerce & community with education & sustainability, we provide an innovative approach to workforce development & employment so that individuals can become self-sufficient. Our mission is to provide the necessary tools so people of all ages can design shared learning experiences that improve the overall health of their community. We aim to dissolve the idea of us vs. them, so that we’re left with just us, living well, together.
