Offering hope to our community one life at a time

Sonshine CM started out with a simple focus of serving McKeesport through a weekly soup kitchen, food pantry and monthly food bank; and has expanded over the years to a ministry reaching children and families with opportunities through our Hang 5 tutor program, Summer programming for children + a week of summer camp KidZone Extreme and the Hope House – a pregnancy resource center which opened in January of 2011.

Sonshine CM is a not-for-profit 501c3 faith based ministry run and supported by volunteers and community partners.
