East End Cooperative Ministry

East End Cooperative Ministry is an interfaith human services organization located in the East Liberty neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh that is devoted to helping individuals suffering the effects of poverty.

We provide a wide array of services to those in need in Pittsburgh. It is our overarching goal to be a partner with the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and the federal government to help eradicate poverty utilizing evidence-based strategies to create a community of opportunity.

Key points of emphasis include:

  • Reducing and/or eliminating hunger and food insecurity in the East End of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. We provide those in need of a hot meal access to our Community Kitchen and Food Pantry.
  • Providing support and resources for those who are homeless.
  • Facilitating positive development for the youth and adults we serve in all facets of service.
  • Guiding struggling individuals and families toward self-sufficiency through case management and supportive services.
  • Adding economic and social value to distressed neighborhoods and communities.

For nearly 50 years, East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM) has been a community leader at the forefront of addressing the issues that impact our area's most at-risk, disadvantaged and underserved populations, and implementing programs to help these populations become self-sufficient. From its beginnings as an interfaith coalition of 18 congregations, EECM has addressed the issues of food insecurity and the need for shelter. Over the years, we have expanded our outreach with additional programs that serve disadvantaged youth, and programs that support workforce development for both youth and adults. Today, we are proud to be considered an important community anchor not only in Pittsburgh's East End, but throughout the City of Pittsburgh. We have been recognized for our service in meeting many of the fundamental needs of those impacted within our local communities, and have become more deeply rooted in our mission to meeting these ongoing needs.
