Outreach & Partners

We strive to be an active member of our community and we partner with many organizations working for justice in our city and our world.

Community Outreach

Redemption Housing

In 2016, WPMF entered into a partnership with Redemption Housing, a faith-based nonprofit that offers support to Philadelphians coming out of incarceration and homelessness. Redemption Housing works to guide its residents towards recovery, seeking to address cycles of recidivism through holistic programming and healthy relationships.

WPMF was the first congregation to support Redemption Housing, and many WPMFers have been involved in building a strong foundation for this startup nonprofit. A committee from WPMF meets together to discuss the congregation’s involvement with Redemption Housing. They also plan for ways of advocating for returning citizens in the church and community.

POWER

In 2011, WPMF joined POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild), a faith-based community organizing group. Based on a national model created by PICO, this group is a newly formed network of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim congregations throughout Philadelphia working to create innovative solutions to the city’s most pressing issues.

WPMF was one of the first congregations to officially join POWER, but many others have joined since.

Crossroads Community Center

WPMF partners with and supports the CrossRoads Community Center. Crossroads Community Center is located on N. 6th St in Philadelphia, PA in one of the most disenfranchised and historically underserved communities of any major US city.

Crossroads Community Center is housed in two row homes in the Fairhill community of Philadelphia and serves the community in a variety of ways. Each week, Crossroads distributes 3,000 pounds of food to the community. The Center also provides a safe haven to teens, offers tutoring and culturally-relevant books, as well as sports.

Comegys Support Team

Complementing the work of Powerlinks, the Comegys Support Team seeks to engage our congregation in hands-on projects to benefit the B.B. Comegys School, a K-8 public school at 51st and Greenway.

This team meets with Comegys staff members to determine volunteer, equipment, and skills needs, and respond as we are able. We value partnership with staff and parents in ways that empower community leadership and enhance the learning experience of our city’s children.

The People’s Baptist Food Pantry

For the past several years WPMF has partnered with The People’s Baptist Church to provide food through their pantry to the West Philadelphia community.
