Making God’s Love Visible
In our commitment to loving and serving our neighbors, both near and far, there are KPC activities aimed at supporting mission work locally and beyond.
Foremost among these is the Presbyterian Women led annual Rummage Sale. Net revenues fund organizations serving charitable financial needs and advocating for social justice. The sale also benefits the local community by offering needed clothing and household items at a very low cost.
This effort involves the entire church and the community and is a tangible representation of our commitment to our Partners.
ACE aspires to partner with public-spirited individuals and organizations to elevate awareness of critical local housing needs, develops affordable housing for low and moderate income households, and supports programs that enhance the capability of people to connect with jobs, schooling and healthy living conditions in their communities.
Exodus Transitional Community
Helping people build rebuild and thrive
In March of 1999, just three years after returning home, Julio Medina founded Exodus Transitional Community with the help of one volunteer and a generous donation by our founding supporters, Frank and Lisina Hoch. Since then, we have grown from a one-room office at the Church of the Living Hope on East 104th Street, donated by the late Reverend Dr. Lonnie McLeod, to a multi-location justice organization serving over 3,000 New Yorkers every year.
Though grounded in our re-entry programs, Exodus Transitional Community offers a broad spectrum of services for adults and youth affected by the justice system, and we are proud to lead the policy and advocacy efforts that promote positive change in our communities. Whether through direct service or service referrals, our mission is to ensure our participants not only become contributing members of society but also that we meet as many of their daily needs as possible to ensure they succeed and live well.

Westchester Christmas Dinner
On a cold and rainy Christmas morning, our team of local volunteers brought Christmas to the doorsteps of 235 Westchester families and people living alone. Nearly 50 volunteer shoppers headed out to area stores and purchased new clothing, toys and gifts. Village Social in Mt. Kisco prepared delicious Christmas meals. And over 70 cars, many filled with entire families, delivered it all to selected recipients throughout Northern Westchester. Generous financial support from our community made it all possible. Our sincere thanks to everyone who had a role in this all-volunteer community project!
