St. Peter’s Outreach Commission assists those who are burdened by systemic issues around housing and healthcare. In doing so, the Commission partners with several local organizations. For further information, please contact the liaison on the Outreach Commission. These individuals can be found in the printed Ministries guide or by contacting the Parish Office.
Church Housing, Corp. (CHC) provides low-income housing to the elderly and those with special needs in Chester and Delaware counties. CHC. provides residences for seniors over the age of sixty-two who meet the income limits and are able to live with limited support. They also have facilities for individuals who are homeless and who have mental, illness, as well as for individuals with HIV/AIDS. Our parishioners provide Christmas gifts, books for the lending library, serve on the Board, provide prayer shawls, and volunteer to help with special needs.
The Clinic is a comprehensive medical clinic providing low-cost/free medical care in Phoenixville for the un- or under-insured. The Clinic was co-founded by a former parishoner who continues to volunteer there. This facility also offers a summer camp for youth who are interested in medical or healthcare careers. Our parishioners collect and provide bags of basic medical supplies and food. Nurse volunteers are particularly needed.
Home Repairs For over two decades, volunteers (teens and adults) from St. Peter’s have gathered monthly to extend the love of Jesus Christ to low-income homeowners by making their homes warmer, safer, and drier. Repairs help all who are involved to develop deeper relationships and to learn or improve handy-work skills. We previously worked with Good Works, Inc., a non-profit. Currently, the team is taking on special projects, by request.
