Josephine Moore

In the late 1980’s, Ms. Moore started a street ministry working in some of Pittsburgh’s most distressed neighborhoods. Concurrently, she met at The Pittsburgh Theological Seminary recruited Rev. Tom Johnson. Together, they partnered to create a summer school program which in 2001 became The Neighborhood Academy, a faith-based, independent, college-prep high school for Pittsburgh’s low-income youth. Seven years later, Ms. Moore launched the successful 10.2 million dollar capital campaign that provided the school with its current 7.8 acre campus.

Ms. Moore holds a B.A. in Russian History from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Masters of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and holds multiple civic awards including the Pittsburgh Business Times 2015 Business Woman First Award.
