The Corner is a community center that serves and brings together residents of the West Oakland and Oak Hill neighborhoods in Pittsburgh’s East End.
As a faith-centered program --- even if not explicitly religious in every activity --- The Corner serve people holistically, valuing individuals whose spiritual, emotional and physical needs are best met in the context of community. The Corner is also neutral space where people can come as they are to develop friendships and learn from one another, across boundaries of race and class or other differences that may otherwise divide them.
Through its resource center, Corner volunteers and staff network with individuals and local agencies to help community members access resources, such as youth programs, childcare and housing assistance, which are available in the area but often go underutilized. It also hosts events such as concerts, workshops and community celebrations.
The Corner is a project of the Friendship Community Presbyterian Church, a small, diverse, urban congregation committed to preaching the Word of God and spreading the Good News to the surrounding community.
The office is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
