Pitcare Ministry House

Our Progress

Community Development and Community Building

Housing and Facilities:

  • PitCare has been involved in the renovations of six (6) single family homes in Pitcairn.
  • Our "Kim Parsons Library & Community Center" is located at 416 Center Avenue (formerly St. Paul’s Church) and is also used by the Pitcairn Meals on Wheels program.
  • The Pitcairn Food Pantry is located at 520 Broadway Avenue. Distribution takes place at the front of the building. The building also has two beautifully renovated three bedroom apartments that are rented to local families at a discounted rate. We are currently making plans to use the store front of this building for a Coffee Shop.

Food Pantry

  • Our Pitcairn Food Pantry provides food for over 120 low income families in our community every month. Since 2016, PitCare has provided approximately 134,000 pounds (over 67 tons!) of canned goods, dried goods, meat, produce, dairy, and personal and household necessities to our community. We also provide special packages to children for weekends and holidays when meals are not provided in school.

Literacy

  • The Kim Parsons Library & Community Center has over 8,500 books available to borrow, 6 laptops that can be used for school, work, and/or personal use, numerous board games, a comfy reading corner, and a toddlers play area.
  • PitCare's Summer Reading Program continues to grow each year, providing opportunities for the children in the neighborhood to gather at the Kim Parsons Library & Community Center for reading, games, and snack.
