Terri Baltimore is the Director of Neighborhood Engagement for the Hill House Association, a non-profit based in Pittsburgh, PA. She has worked there for nearly 25 years and is currently responsible for environmental programs, volunteer activities and strategic partnerships. 

Ms. Baltimore developed the Hill District Community Collaborative, which brought together 35 neighborhood organizations and community institutions to plan, coordinate and provide services for women and children. Along with four community partners, she co-founded the “Dot Talley Center,” which provided supportive housing for women and children. She co-founded “Find The Rivers,” an organization that promoted the neighborhood’s greenspaces as an opportunity to build the local economy, to take advantage of the community’s proximity to the three rivers and to encourage health and wellness. She was part of the team that created “The Greenprint,” the green plan for the Hill. The Greenprint was featured in the Biennale in Venice and in a recent exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum titled, “By The People: Designing A Better America.”

She is involved with the following organizations: Board President with the Ujamaa Collective; Member of the African American Advisory Board at the John Heinz History Center; Board member of the Daisy Wilson Artist Community, Inc.; and a former Trustee with the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

In 2016, Ms. Baltimore was named the inaugural Community Fellow attached to the Center for Community Engaged Teaching and Research at Duquesne University.

She earned a BA in Journalism from Duquesne University and was a member of the Leadership Pittsburgh Class XXII.
