Our Impact

We Lead by Serving

Food Security:

Food security means that you have the access and resources to obtain safe and healthy food. Many families are forced to choose between food and rent or medication, and depend on the Pottstown Cluster to close that gap in order to feed their children. The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities regularly responds to community need by disbursing food through a food pantry, delivery service, community meal program, and redistribution.

Housing Stability:

Food and housing security are foundational needs for members of the community to be able to be productive and healthy. The Pottstown Cluster works to both mitigate and prevent homelessness. We administer programs that provide rental assistance, eviction prevention, and rapid re-housing. We pursue grant support in order to make it possible for families to not only survive, but start to thrive.

 

Supportive Services and Education:

 In 2021 we worked to expand and redesign our education and supportive services. Our goal is to offer more accessible and relevant programming that supports a positive transition towards self-empowerment and helps our clients become sustainably food secure. Both in-person and online educational opportunities will be available to help people obtain personalized basic needs and provide safe support regardless of the status of current or future health crises. This important work will begin in 2022 with a staff member dedicated to education and outreach.

PCRC thanks its “Big Heart+” Supporters and its Community Partners!
