About

Wilkinsburg Volunteer Delivering Meals to Seniors Wilkinsburg Community Ministry provides services to approximately 3,000 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.

WCM Mission

Wilkinsburg Community Ministry, a non-profit supported by area residents and congregations, responds to persistent needs of all faiths, addressing the human service crises in our community.

Wilkinsburg Community Ministry Programs include:

  • Youth Meal Partnership - we prepare meals for school-aged children through after-school, summer, and special needs program partnerships;
  • Urban Survival Program – helps families in tough situations through several initiatives: Emergency Food Pantry, Holiday Food Distribution, Clothing and Household Donations, SNAP Assistance, Energy Assistance and other Social Services.
  • Our Warm Hearts initiative, with our partners at KnitOne, coordinates volunteer knitters and crocheters throughout Allegheny County to make hats, mittens and gloves for children. These are distributed through the school district, specifically through Kelly and Turner schools. This year we will also distribute some to crossing guards and bus drivers.

We welcome you to get involved in the Wilkinsburg community by volunteering and/or making a donation. We appreciate your support and interest in making our community a better place to live, work, pray, and play.
