The East End Edition

Burgh Baby Diaper Drive

Visit Community House during the month of February to drop off your unopened bags of diapers. EECM is partnering with Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank during their Burgh Baby Diaper Drive. Donated diapers will be distributed free to families in need throughout the region.

Winter poses many challenges to families in need. When paychecks are used for utilities, such as the gas bill, less is available for personal care items, like diapers.

Show your support to the babies in our community by making your donation of unopened diapers in the big blue bin at the main foyer of Community House. Sizes 4, 5, and 6 are the most in-demand sizes of diapers.

Donations will be accepted through February 28th.

Finding success at Safe Haven

Our Safe Haven program is aptly named - it is a place where homeless men who are facing mental health challenges can find safety and stability to help them manage their mental health and find a place in the community.
