NEIGHBORHOOD PARTNERSHIPS

 

Solidarity
SOLIDARITY exists to equip Latino, immigrant families in under-resourced neighborhoods for community transformation. We partner with and support Solidarity in several ways to aid in this transformation. 
  • We provide office space for Camino Immigration, an initiative of Solidarity.  Click here to learn more about Camino Immigration.
  • We provide meals and support to Solidarity's Merge ministry for local teens.
  • We collaborate with teen leaders from Solidarity & PPC for our summer day camp program on the PPC campus and the summer enrichment program at the Solidarity neighborhood youth center.

 
PPC, in partnership with SOLIDARITY, conducts a Food Distribution in the local neighborhood to support families affected by job loss, inflation.  CLICK HERE for more information on volunteering.

 
H.I.S. HOUSE is a homeless shelter for working families immediately next door to our church. Placentia Presbyterian Church purchased the house in 1989, establishing it as a homeless shelter and we continue to provide the home to HIS-OC for their main shelter in Placentia. We also provide office space for HIS-OC on the PPC Campus.

H.I.S. House assists people experiencing homelessness to regain self-sufficiency.  Opportunities for volunteers can be found on the HIS-OC website.

  KRAEMER MIDDLE SCHOOL is a partner of PPC.  Each year PPC offers support to the school as requested by the staff.

BEYOND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

 
Vizcaino Ministry

The little church called “La Iglesia Puerta del Cielo” meaning gate of heaven (Gen 28:17), serves the very poor who work the commercial farms located in the desert area approximately 650 miles south of Placentia in the center of the Baja Peninsula,  introducing them to the Gospel.
PPC Men’s Ministry constructed this church building for the poor of the Vizcaino area, the largest in Baja Sur, Mexico, and it has served the members since the summer of 2012.  God is using this building, along with additional satellite churches to bring the Good News to this barren desert area of Mexico.  The Sanctuary Building is also used as a Rescue Center when the area is flooded from Pacific Ocean hurricanes that pass over the Baja peninsula.
