Birthdays come but once a year and when they come they bring good cheer! A Beverly’s Birthdays celebration is all about making a child feel important on his/her special day. We spread joy, laughter, cheer and most importantly we create positive memories for these children and their families.
Since 1872, we have aspired to do just that for the elderly poor of Pittsburgh. Thousands from all walks of life, religions, and beliefs have been part of our family here on Benton Avenue. Together with lay staff and many volunteers, we offer love, respect and compassion for our Residents.

Since its inception 25 years ago, Friends of the Riverfront works to reclaim and restore the Pittsburgh region’s riverfronts for public use. We maintain, promote, and improve the 24-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail and 21 Three Rivers Water Trail river access points. We build and expand these trail systems through collaboration with community partners, government officials, and a diverse volunteer base. Together, we have transformed our rivers and riverfronts from industrial wastelands to internationally recognized examples of environmental renewal.
For some historical perspective on our region’s rivers and riverfronts and the Friends of the Riverfront organization, we published Forging Connections: Twenty Years of Building the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, in 2011.
