Ten Waynesburg University students will serve The Pittsburgh Project (TPP) for a weekend work camp Friday, Nov. 14, through Sunday, Nov. 16. Laurie Steere, resident director at Waynesburg University, will serve as trip leader.
Located on the north side of Pittsburgh, TPP is a Christian community development organization that serves vulnerable homeowners in neighborhoods throughout the city by providing home repairs. TPP is committed to meeting the needs of the Pittsburgh community and providing inner-city housing ministries. For several years, Waynesburg University has partnered with TPP to give homeowners a chance to save their homes as well as prevent possible citation or eviction.
Students participating will assist with general home repairs and focus on building relationships with homeowners.
