About Lively

Our History

Lively is the place where active adults in the Pittsburgh region go to pursue their passions, share their ideas, and help shape their communities.

Launched in early 2015, the genesis of Lively Pittsburgh goes back much further. Through their own experiences in public health, three childhood friends began discussing a problem that they had observed in their professional work. They began seeking solutions to bridge the gap between service providers and aging adults in the community who want or need access to them.

Initially focusing on the Pittsburgh region where they grew up, the founders of Moringa Living LLC performed extensive research and discussions with stakeholders and residents at the city, county, state, and national levels. Based upon this feedback it was decided to explore partnerships with several agencies, and in early 2014 the Resource Center for Active Aging (RCAA) was created. The RCAA is a membership network of human service agencies committed to the development of new, progressive programs and resources for a more age-inclusive community. 

The information gleaned from the six founding agency members as well as incredible research and design contributions from students at Carnegie Mellon University’s HCII program, shed light on our most important findings: aging adults are a highly valuable asset to our communities with a very different idea of retirement than previous generations.

Have a class you’d like to attend? A group you’d like to start? An idea you’d like to see happen? Knowledge or skills you’d like to share? Whatever it may be, LivelyPittsburgh.com and our network of partners can help to make it happen.

Log on, explore, contribute, and act. It’s your site, your community, and most importantly, your life.
