OUR STORY

Welcome to Patchwork

Since its founding in 1977, Patchwork has worked to serve its neighborhood through flexible and innovative programming that matches the talents and interests of those involved to the needs of our community.

Today, Patchwork serves individuals and families with unique arts and enrichment programming for youth, an emergency food pantry, hospitality offered to all our neighbors, a community garden and meditative green spaces, facilities for other community organizations, and a health ministry offering health screenings and consultation with a nurse.

In a single year, thousands of people come through our doors. As part of the community fabric, Patchwork changes the lives of those it serves by giving them a sense of hope, a place of acceptance, and a bright outlook for the future. Patchwork is a place where people come together and learn from one another.
