Welcome to the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition!

The Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition (SHUC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization that gives voice to the hopes and concerns of our residents, institutions, businesses, and visitors and works to preserve, improve, and celebrate the quality of life in our vibrant urban Squirrel Hill neighborhood. We do this by representing the common interests of the neighborhood with regards to community development and improvement, promotion of safety and strong schools, and preservation of the diverse historic and cultural character of our community.

We can't do this without your help! Come attend a committee meeting. Join us at a SHUC-led event. Attend any of our public monthly board meetings. We hope to see you soon!
