Home Repair in Uniontown, Pennsylvania
Just a short distance from Pittsburg, Uniontown settles among the rolling highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania. In 1967, Uniontown was the birthplace of the McDonald’s Big Mac sandwich, and there is even a museum to mark the popular snack and icon of fast food. As with most communities in this region, Uniontown’s economy waned during the recent deindustrialization, when the steel industry restructured and many jobs went elsewhere, including offshore. This decline continues today and the population is about half its peak of 1940.
A large modern school awaits your group in Uniontown. Well within reach of the main downtown, perched on a hill with great views, with ample space for the groups, this air-conditioned facility will be a great temporary home for your group. Enjoy the track and large fields for recreation as well.
A variety of jobs await you here. Many homes just need a spruce up with paint. Others need a completely new porch. Ramps are also planned. Impacting specific neighborhoods and clusters of homes and residents with needs in the city are foremost in the plan.
After a brief time away from hosting Workcamps, our local community development partner is back to impact the community through home repairs. Other services they provide include a food bank, employment education, youth services, retired citizen programs, financial and tax counseling, and WIC. Clearly, our partner is plugged into and helping the entire community.
