Community Service in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | Week of Hope

Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They’ll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. As students serve in the name of Jesus, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, with their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose.

Where

The Pittsburgh area is home to many neighboring communities including New Kensington, Lower Burrell and Natrona Heights. Many people in New Kensington live below the poverty level, and struggle to make ends meet week-to-week. Some of the biggest needs include providing meals, clothing, and personal supplies for families. One of the very special places we serve is the Rainbow Kitchen, which provides a vital safety net for hungry children, struggling families, low-income elderly, ill and disabled individuals, the homeless, and growing numbers of people who are unemployed or among the working poor. Last year, Rainbow Kitchen provided more than 19,000 nutritious Kids Café dinner meals to low-income children at risk of hunger—and served an additional 18,000 substantial hot meals to breakfast program participants. The people of Pittsburgh are looking forward to your arrival. We hope to see you there!
