Each chaplain is a licensed or ordained minister of a congregation in Wilkinsburg. Chaplains are credentialed by the Willkinsburg Police Department and participate in regular trainings. The mission of the chaplains is to provide a pastoral presence in response to a critical incident in our community resulting in serious injury or loss of life to the residents of Wilkinsburg.
Each summer the Wiklinsburg Sanctuary Project provides jobs for 6 weeks for youth aged 14-18. For the past three summers, these jobs have been part of the Learn and Earn program of the Wilkinsburg Youth Project which provides jobs in the areas of mentoring children, media, gardening and construction.
