Congregations United for Compassion and Empowerment
Formed in 1995, Congregations United for Compassion and Empowerment (CUCE) was created 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 assistance 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 the homeless. The Day Center is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., and provides a warm environment to relax, socialize, receive a hot meal, shower, do laundry, and receive addition-recovery support.
