East End Cooperative Ministry is a multi-service agency pursuing a humanitarian vision of eradicating poverty with both social and economic returns. We deploy 21st century evidence-based strategies to advance our mission to build a community of opportunity in Pittsburgh.
Why EECM might you ask? Your fundraising and donations would address children, housing, employment, education, and access to healthy food. EECM’s programs tackle poverty on a holistic approach, and your participation in this campaign could help support multiple causes that are important to you, all in one organization!
