Our outreach programs provide support and education for community members at all stages of life. From Scouting to GED classes to 12 step programs to Seniors...people helping people is what the OPCC is all about.
Adult Education Program
The community currently has educational needs that we here at the Old Pine Community Center are trying to fulfill. The Adult Education Program is expanding and working hard to get our learners into a comfortable place that they can be proud of in their lives. We are enriching the lives of hundreds of people in the community through one-on-one tutoring and would like to continue to do so. We are in need of volunteers for the Adult Education Program to help us continue this mission and to help more people. If you would like to help us serve the City of Brotherly Love, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-627-2493.

The Old Pine Community Center’s program against homelessness provides a “brown bag” lunch twice a week to the homeless in the area. The program also provides much needed resources through our "clothing closet" as well as emergency aid to many near homeless families. Our goal is to grow this program into the FACT program. FACT is an acronym for Food, Aid, Clothing and Training. Through this program we plan to not only provide immediate aid but to assist in reaching life-changing goals.
From hot meals to hot showers, Old Pine Community Center aims to help the homeless community of Philadelphia on multiple fronts. A fully stocked clothing closet is available for those in need, thanks to generous donations provided by neighbors and community members. To make a donation or to find help, contact the Center today.
Our homeless program is expanding! We are excited to announce our new Sunday Meal Initiative. Every Sunday beginning July 16, 2017 from 7:30 -10 am we will offer showers and a hot meal to those in need. We have partnered with the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity to provide this non-traditional day of service to our City. We hope you will join us, to volunteer, to donate, or to eat. Our doors are open and everyone is welcome!
