Pitcairn On Center

The Pitcare “On Center” Building – located at 416 Center Avenue

The Library: Part of PitCare On Center has been renovated to hold the new Library and is now stocked with over 20,000 books that we have purchased for circulation within the community. We also receive programming support from the Monroeville Library, and are working towards funding a librarian position, developing an embedded technology and study center, and expanding the hours of library operation. We see this as a major milestone in developing literacy with Pitcairn’s children and Youth.

Meals on Wheels: A full commercial Kitchen has been maintained within On Center, and provides the base of operations for the Community Meals on Wheels program. We provide space to Meals on Wheels without rent, so that this vital service can remain viable.

Performing Arts On Center: We plan to develop the former sanctuary into a small venue for performing arts, conferences, and a place for other organizations and Churches to use as a meeting place.

The PitCare “On Broadway” Building – located at 520 Broadway

We have purchased and renovated a building located in the traditional business and commerce district on Broadway Boulevard. On Broadway will soon house the Pitcairn Food Pantry operations in an area that is much more accessible than our current location. Our storage capacity is greatly expanded with a larger warehouse space and more shelving capacity. , We are also installing both a walk-in freezer and a walk-in cooler to enable us to hold food safely and more energy efficiently. 

We are providing office space to the Mon Valley Circles, a charity and partner organization that we have found to be a skilled provider of ground level assistance to those in significant and immediate need. By allowing Mon Valley Circles to return their operations to Pitcairn, we are directly and immediately impacting the needs of the most needy, and giving necessary support to an organization that has already developed much of the expertise that we would otherwise have had to develop ourselves.

The On Broadway Coffee Shop. With the acquisition of the On Broadway Building, we now have a site to develop a community coffee shop. Currently in Pitcairn, there is no place to sit and talk with friends and have a cup of coffee. While a coffee shop might seem to be a small step, we believe that the development of the coffee shop is a significant and extremely important step forward in the development of community among Pitcairn residents and that it will prove to be a catalyst in the revitalization of the business district.

Even More Family Housing. The Broadway building also houses two newly renovated, three bedroom apartments. These apartments are beautiful, and are being rented to local families at a reduced rate. We have completely updated the apartments with new windows, new kitchens and new bathrooms. The floors and carpets have been replaced, and new appliances will be installed. So far, our potential tenants have been thrilled at the prospect of moving into these spacious apartments in the fall.
