Nonprofit Overview

Mission:

To build a community of opportunity in Pittsburgh

Target demographics: Children, adults, and families

Geographic areas served: Pittsburgh

Programs: East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM) was founded in 1970 as a collective response to changes in the community, born when the leaders of 18 local faith communities recognized that the troubles of the community were too great for any one of them to address alone. For many of the individuals it serves, EECM provides the necessities of life: a hot meal, a safe, place to sleep, food for the family. For others, it is a place to regain strength after a hospital stay, a support system to work toward recovery, or one-on-one help to change life for the better. For young people, EECM is educational programs, drug and alcohol prevention programs, violence prevention programs, Summer Day Camp, and a concerted effort to show our children a better future. Our three programs include Children & Youth Services, Community Nutrition Services, and IMPACTS (Individuals Making Progress and Change through Self-Sufficiency).
