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.
WHAT WE DO
Pittsburgh Community Services, Inc. (PCSI) was established in 1983 as the designated Community Action Agency (CAA) for the city of Pittsburgh and has served as the anti-poverty agency for the city for over 30 years.
PCSI serves approximately 6,000 individuals annually.
Strengthen individuals, families, and communities in Pittsburgh by bridging the gaps from poverty toward sustained prosperity!
Our mission is accomplished through advocacy, strategic collaboration, partnerships, case management directed services, and innovative solutions that affect systemic change.
PCSI is recognized as the innovative Community Action leader in reducing the impact of poverty in Pittsburgh through direct service, advocacy, mobilization of resources, sustainable economic empowerment, and effective institutional change.
Our programs are free of charge to the people we serve, but we still believe that people bring value to the interaction, and we strive to provide excellent service. Therefore, we serve customers.
