Community Outreach Partnership coordinates the work of dedicated volunteers to provide companionship and meals to the elderly and to homeless men.

Our work in these areas is meant to call attention to the common humanity shared by helpers and those who need help. Activities include:


A collaborative enterprise of the Community Outreach Partnership of ECS and the Bethesda Project our volunteers provide nightly meals and companionship to homeless men during the cold winter months.


Nutritious meals distributed to frail or lonely elders in Philadelphia.


Providing companionship to men and women who are aging in place and living alone.

Community Outreach Partnership began in 1985 as a partnership between Trinity Memorial Church and its neighbors. Learn more about the organization’s history here. Community Outreach Partnership came under the auspices of ECS in January 2016.
