Target demographics: Our demographic tends to be clustered. Young men from age 18-25. Middle aged women and men from 30-65 and young women from 20-35. The young women tend to be college related as do the young men. The Second set tend to be semi professional-professional folks. The income levels range from the extreme popular caste to lower middle class. A lot of our programs speak to the popular caste.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We cater to hundreds of people every year through the different programs and shared programs.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help us take disadvantaged children for a hike in the Adirondacks or help out at the neighborhood Food Pantry.
You could also join the Skill bank and share your unique expertise with those in need.

Programs: We have many programs on the table that are looking for someone to take the lead on them. We are an excellent choice for channeling your volunteer efforts.

Mission:
We are an eclectic Pagan Congregational church devoted: to the charitable relief of the popular caste; to the dissemination of clerical and spiritual training in many disciplines; to the defense of Social and Economic Justice and to the development of Global Peace locally. We seek to develop our unique connections to the Divine through exploration of cultural paradigms and Traditions.
Results:
We have provided spiritual counseling to hundreds of families and others in need over the years. We have provided pastoral care to over 150 couples and kept most of them together( 9 divorces with 1 reconcilement). We have housed the homeless on many occasions and referred folks to social services available within the Community that were supportive of Pagan folks. (Many are not supportive and this is an issue facing our popular Caste). We have taught gardening techniques to disadvantaged youths in the neighborhood and we have helped clean up our neighborhood with other members of the neighborhood. We have helped to paint artwork for the windows of abandoned buildings and we have hosted other Community art events to beautify the neighborhood. We have hosted a yearly Earth Day Festival that has attracted over 500 folks. We have sponsored other organizations with our 501c 3 status that met our requirements and fell into our mission areas. We have also helped to build a skill sharing time bank locally and helped in other permaculture and simple living initiatives.

As a new board member, the various projects I've been involved with so far have been greatly satisfying and productive. The raised garden beds we constructed on 9th Avenue in Troy added a great deal to the community and were enjoyed by all. The local kids took something with them that should last ... more »
