Current Missions

1) One of their current missions is to stop release of funds for the demolition of the 1904 First Baptist Church of McKeesport.

“The McKeesport Housing Authority plans to demolish downtown McKeesport’s circa 1904 brownstone First Baptist Church (409 Olive St.), using money released from HUD, to create “green space” in a section of the city that already has numerous vacant lots from previous demolitions. The “green space” is intended to benefit the residents of the nearby town home development. However, with so many vacant lots in the vicinity, why demolish one of the city’s historic buildings to meet this goal? ¬†The church in question is one of few brownstone buildings in the region and could be adaptively reused. Please sign this petition, which will be sent to HUD, The City of McKeesport, and McKeesport Housing Authority to show that there is opposition to the demolition of this beautiful building for green space in an already mostly-demolished section of McKeesport (”

If you are in the area surrounding the church or believe this type of work is important please support their Patreon page today.
