Congregations United for Compassion and Empowerment
Congregations United for Compassion and Empowerment (CUCE) was formed in 1995 when a group of local clergy gathered together with a desire to help individuals and families in need in our community. Today, more than twenty congregations support CUCE through financial support and providing volunteers. St. Andrew’s is one of CUCE’s partnering congregations. Among the services provided by CUCE is the PG Plaza Day Center for individuals experiencing homelessness. The Day Center is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., and provides a warm environment where participants may relax, socialize, receive a hot meal, shower, do laundry, and receive addiction-recovery support.
