Our Mission

The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation (BGC) exists to improve the quality of life for all in Garfield and surrounding neighborhoods through active community engagement.

Community-based and board-driven, one of the BGC’s main goals is to get as many people in the community as possible to participate in the efforts aimed at physical revitalization, an improved economy and strengthened social well-being. Learn more about us…

Garfield has a wealth of vacant properties with untapped potential; the BGC aims to transform these properties into affordable housing assets. One such property, 4924 Dearborn St., is being acquired through the City of Pittsburgh’s Vacant Property Reserve, which CDC’s can use to help eliminate blighted conditions in their neighborhoods. The following invitation welcomes proposals for buying and renovating the property from members of the general public. The minimum offer the BGC can accept for this property is $5,000. Request for Proposals – 4924 Dearborn St.

The Western PA Conservancy and Evolve Architecture have completed their report on open spaces in the upper part of Garfield, inventorying the sites and assessing their relative condition. This report also contains input from members of the public who attended several community meetings. View the report here.
