WE BRIDGE THE GAPS.

Pittsburgh is famously known as a city of bridges, but it is also a city of gaps. Many thousands of Pittsburghers live in poverty, and communities all over the city are affected by issues related to poverty. At PCSI, we work with our customers and their communities to overcome challenges related to poverty. In other words, we bridge the gaps.

OUR MISSION
