About WCM

 

Wilkinsburg Community Ministry provides services to approximately 5,000 residents per year, including senior citizens, citizens with disabilities, at-risk youth, and families who are economically challenged, unemployed, under-employed or facing emergency situations. The outcomes of our programs include reducing hunger in Wilkinsburg, ensuring the health and well-being of our senior citizen neighbors, helping economically-challenged families have basic necessities, such as food, diapers, clothing, and heat in their homes, and keeping Wilkinsburg streets safer through partnerships with educational and after-school youth programs. WCM is a collaboration of seven area churches, with members of the board representing each of the churches.  In 1968, a number of clergy and lay leaders from ten congregations formed the Board of Directors for the Wilkinsburg Community Ministry. The unity of several congregations makes it possible for WCM to meet the extreme needs of poverty and hunger in our community and provide effective community services to all persons regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation and creed.
