The Christian Center of Park City ("CCPC") is a broad-based, humanitarian resource center located in Park City, Utah with a satellite campus in Heber. Our mission is to meet people at their point of need. We seek to provide compassion, dignity and hope to all we serve, as we provide a critical safety net for individuals and families in Summit and Wasatch Counties.
We started from scratch 20 years ago and over these years CCPC has helped leverage over $21 million worth of food and household goods to those in need. We have provided a multitude of programs and social enterprises including the largest food pantries in Summit and Wasatch counties, two thrift stores, a clothing boutique, emergency and seasonal worker assistance, programming support for seniors, monthly outreach to the Goshute Native American Community and a fully-staffed mental health counseling center.
We save families and change lives. All of CCPC services are offered to all those in need regardless of race, religion or gender.
Every day, people from all walks of life come to CCPC seeking help with one of the most basic aspects of life: food! It is CCPC’s vision to provide food to everyone who is food-insecure in Summit and Wasatch Counties. In order to help CCPC expand its services and raise awareness about this need, they depend on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations. The Christian Center of Park City has been fighting to end hunger in our community for over 19 years.
Meeting Basic Needs
It is our goal to do everything we can to meet people at their point of need. We have people come to us who are going through a difficult time – job or life transitions, major emergencies like a home fire or medical situation, unexpected repairs, homelessness and many complicated situations in-between.
We have a Case Manager who seeks to view each person with dignity and holistically while seeking to solve why they are in an emergency situation rather than just giving out money and goods.
Our mission is to meet people at their point of need. We seek to provide compassion, dignity and hope to all we serve, as we provide a critical safety net primarily for individuals and families in Summit and Wasatch Counties.
Seasonal Worker Outreach
Each winter season, we welcome hundreds of seasonal and international student workers who come to work in Park City. We provide multiple services for them, including our food pantry and thrift stores. One of our favorite programs is our Tuesday Nite Dinners, which has become one of our longest-running programs. Starting in January, we invite international student workers who are employed in Park City during the ski season to join us at CCPC for a FREE homemade meal, zany games, karaoke and an opportunity to make new friends.
Native American Outreach
Over the years, we have served both the Navajo Nation and the Goshute Tribe. Thanks to the ongoing and generous support of American Express, we began the Goshute Initiative in 2011. Ally Bank has since joined in support of our outreach efforts.
We determined through extensive discussions with the Goshute Tribe that there was a compelling need to provide assistance with food security and nutritional education concerning obesity and diabetes, to start with.
CCPC highly values partnering and collaborating with other nonprofits, schools, government entities, faith communities, individuals and for-profit companies; in order to collectively meet people at their point of need. Simply put, we could not accomplish all that we do without critical community partners.
