Formed 15 years ago in 2004, by the 10 parishes that comprise the Pontiac Vicariate of the Detroit Archdiocese. The PAV decided to respond to several factors:
OUR CONTINUED MISSION
We also work to build a permanent bridge between 2 populations who live in close proximity, but whose life experiences are worlds apart: those in crisis with urgent, unmet needs (primarily in the Pontiac area), and volunteers wanting to live out their faith through the works of charity and justice.
We provide a Christian compassionate response to those in need primarily within, but not limited to, the City of Pontiac. We provide intake services & assessments based on client needs to build relationships in order to overcome small hurdles which hinder self-sustainability.
We coordinate our efforts with other community agencies and providers to make the best use of available resources and to provide appropriate referrals to broaden the scope of our response.
