How are nonprofits impacted by PULSE?
“PULSE allowed us to increase our capacity during a time of transition and financial insecurity. Thanks to the work of our PULSE participant, I was able to focus on other things while our programs continued to flourish. We are ending the year in a much better place than when we began. This is in no small part the result of having partnered with PULSE.”
– Myrna Newman, Executive Director, Allegheny Cleanways
“I honestly don’t think our work in Propel Schools would have been successful without our PULSE participant. She was level-headed, confident and loving with our students. I give her a ton of credit for the way she presented our organization to the Pittsburgh community.”
-Alexa Belajac, Director of Education and community Engagement, WYEP
