City Partners with Cordico and JCC to Develop Health and Wellness App for Public Safety Personnel

PITTSBURGH, PA (August 24, 2021) Today, the City of Pittsburgh announced a partnership with Cordico, Inc. and the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh (JCC) to develop an app to promote mental health and wellness for employees of the Pittsburgh Bureaus of Police, Fire, and EMS and their families.

The JCC, through the 10.27 Healing Partnership, will use funding from a grant the organization received from the United States Department of Justice’s Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program to pay for a one-year subscription of a wellness app to be developed by Cordico, Inc. for public safety personnel, first responders, and their families. This initiative aligns with a key goal of Mayor William Peduto’s Community Task Force on Police Reform, which recommended enhancing officer wellness to “support them in healthy living for their own sake, for the sake of their families, and for the sake of their community.”

Legislation authorizing the partnership was introduced to City Council today.
