We are happy to announce that one of our grant recipients, Kellie D. Wild, IMPACTS Program Director for East End Cooperative Ministry has won The Fred McFeely Rogers Award for Creative Ministry from The Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.

In 2012 Kellie assumed her current job as IMPACTS program director for East End Cooperative Ministry. She ensures that all EECM’s services align with the overarching goal of breaking the cycles of poverty, addiction, and homelessness.

 Her volunteer work has included service on the boards of Church Union, Foundation of HOPE, and Three Rivers Walk to Emmaus; the advisory board of the Seminary’s Metro-Urban Institute; and various committees of the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference of the UMC.
