NEW INITIATIVES

Throughout its history SICM has developed programs and services to
address community concerns, nurtured those programs and, when ready, "spun -off" those programs to other organizations or to independent nonprofit status.

Examples include a resource center for persons with HIV/AIDS; an
emergency shelter and outreach program for those at risk of sexual
exploitation; and others. SICM pilots new initiatives that address an unmet need or gap in service.

VOLUNTEERS & INTERNS

SICM relies on the time and talents of thousands of volunteers and high school and college summer interns to support a variety of SICM programs.

Celebrating 50 years, SICM is a partnership of 51 congregations for ministries of social service and social justice. With financial support and volunteers from its members and others, SICM serves thousands of high-need people each year. SICM addresses public health needs such as food insecurity and nutrition education, racism and diversity concerns, and summer recreation through community collaborations and exceptional services and programs.

Focus Areas:

* Food Insecurity
* Family and Youth

* Collaborations, Partners and Advocacies

 

SOCIAL JUSTICE

The Schenectady Cogrou[punty Embraces Diversity (SCED) program is a collaborative project addressing issues of racism and diversity through Study Circles—structured discussion groups designed for middle and high school students, and Dialogue for Change conversations for adults.

SUMMER DAY CAMP

SICM’s faith-based summer day camp takes advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings at Steinmetz Park, located in the city of Schenectady. It offers hands-on activities designed to motivate campers and engage them in educational and enjoyable learning opportunities, including off-site field trips.
