Sally Rafson embraces Shifra’s responsibility to the community that helps to build individual security by accessing community resources. Sally, a native Pittsburgher, has degrees in Anthropology, Education, and International Development. Her passion is helping build individual empowerment. Her career began as the director of a new shared housing nonprofit dedicated to enabling homeowners to remain in their homes while also providing housing to those at risk of homelessness. She eventually became an educator, teaching at Community Day School before moving to Toronto. Upon returning to Pittsburgh, Sally founded Sharing Our Story LLC, a social enterprise that strives to build social bridges in Pittsburgh neighborhoods between newly resettled refugees and immigrants with their American born neighbors. She looks forward to working in an environment where she can help further individual empowerment and family security.
