The United Way’s Bob Nelkin… It will never be goodbye!

Many of us have enjoyed collaborating with Bob Nelkin over the course of our varied careers. Whether it was working on the Home Rule Amendment, the Youth Crime Prevention Council, or the Homeless Task Force, one thing is for sure — his passion for social reform knows no bounds. He turned the United Way of Allegheny County (now United Way of Southwestern PA) into one of the most successful organizations of its kind in the country.

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation will be forever grateful to Bob for his years of board service. The positive ripples that Bob has sent out across the Pittsburgh region are countless, but one example is perhaps representative: following one of the thousands of presentations Bob made in the community over the years, he connected with a high school student worried about the mental health concerns of fellow teens in her Orthodox community.

"I know just the place for you!"

Bob invited her to our Adolescent Behavioral Health Kickoff in 2018 and the rest, as they say, is history. This young woman is now a leader among our youth advocates and among the youth in her community.

Thank you, Bob, for all that you've done, and will continue to do – just by being you. Happy retirement!
