Thanks to generous contributions from The PNC Foundation and DEP Technologies, Inc., we were able to develop an interactive database of community assets in the city. McKeesport has hundreds of individuals, organizations, and programs that are supporting the people and the city. These efforts are publicly and privately financed from a myriad of local and regional sources.
Before TCR can select the area with the greatest need and where our organization can make a significant contribution, we need to determine:
- what assets are available.
- how effective they are.
- how TCR can contribute to those resources and services.
To accomplish this, we first must have a clear and comprehensive picture of what is working. To that end, we will build an interactive database where all fields will be able to respond to queries to allow functional use of the database information. This community-asset database will not only be a critical tool for that evaluation, but it will also serve as an ongoing asset to the community. It will be maintained so that everyone will have access to what is available and who is providing those services.
Our volunteers and contract service staff and students will canvas the entire community and complete this form for entry into our community asset database. This database will enable us to be sure to involve all active parties as we explore new solutions and resources to strengthen our community fabric. We welcome individuals and organizations to complete our application and to contact us about who and what organizations are involved in specific targeted areas.
