NCM has a great impact on low-income individuals living in Pittsburgh, by providing family relationship strengthening and self-sufficiency programs that develops healthy life skills attitudes and behaviors. We honor leaders who are committed to building and strengthening our communities.Last year NCM served 464 low-income individuals living in Allegheny County (97% were African-American female headed single-parent families and high-risk school-aged youth in grades K-12) by providing case-managed life skills services and basic needs distribution. These participants were resilient and possessed strengths that assisted them in recovering from negative experiences as was sited by reports below: with a budget under $50,000 consisting of small grants, sponsors, partnerships and the assistance of 60 volunteer staff and 11 board members. NCM served 42 at risk youth by providing case-managed services, including conflict resolution and life skills leadership training, scheduled 9 educational workshops, counseled 19 grieving families, 15 in-home parent-child visits, made 17 referrals to East Liberty Family Health Care Center, assisted with 10 Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Applications and engaged 79 hardship program referrals in case-managed family relationship strengthening programs, gifted 352 low-income and homeless individuals through our case-managed distribution of new winter coats, backpacks, books, school supplies, food packages and toys. All services were free.
