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 “On Center” building located at 416 Center Avenue (formerly St. Paul’s Church) is used by the Pitcairn Meals on Wheels program and is being developed into the Kim Parsons Library and Community Center.
  • The Pitcairn Food Pantry is located in the rear of PitCare's “On Broadway” building at 520 Broadway Avenue – The building also has two beautifully renovated three bedroom apartments that are rented to local families at a discounted rate. And 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

  • PitCare's Summer Reading Program continues to grow each year, providing opportunities for the children in the neighborhood to gather at the "On Center" location for reading, games, and snack.
  • Kim Parsons Library and Community Center will celebrate its Grand Opening in the Fall of 2019. Once opened, you will find over 30,000 books, computers, and educational resources for the entire Pitcairn community.
