MCC East Coast programs

From preparing kits to knotting comforters and quilting to baling paper, cardboard and books for recycling, volunteers at the MCC East Coast Material Resources Center in Ephrata, Pa., provide the essential humanpower behind MCC’s ministries. The Material Resources Center (MRC) functions to process and ship quality supplies for MCC both domestically and internationally. The MRC also offers educational opportunities to visitors and volunteers alike. Contact the MRC at 717-733-2847 or EastCoastMRC@mcc.org to get involved.

Volunteer opportunities are also available at the Material Resource Center of Harleysville (Souderton, Pa.) and Cumberland Valley Relief Center (Chambersburg, Pa.). 

MCC East Coast heeds the call to welcome the stranger among us, providing radical hospitality to immigrants and newcomers through direct service programs and partnerships.

Throughout the East Coast region, MCC staff are available to provide education and resources for congregations interested in raising awareness about immigration-related issues.


In South Florida, MCC East Coast and our partners provide immigration services at minimal fees to members of Anabaptist churches. With the supervision of immigration attorneys, immigration counselors assist church members with:
 

  • naturalization
  • family petitions
  • adjustment of status
  • replacement or renewal of green cards and work permits.

MCC staff in South Florida share God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by providing low-cost legal services to low-income immigrants residing in the community.

Counselors meet with clients by appointment only. Please contact our offices to schedule an appointment.

The U.S. has 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the world’s prison population, according to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

MCC answers Jesus’ call by journeying alongside communities who have been targeted by the mass incarceration system and working toward healing and restoration. We extend care and meet basic human needs through our prisoner care kits that we deliver to those who are incarcerated in Philadelphia.

Learn more and donate prison care kits.

For MCC, young adults are an incredible source of inspiration, challenge and hope. Young adults, ages 18-30, can attend a peace camp, be a Summer Service participant in their local community, serve with Serving And Learning Together (SALT) in an international setting for one year, or intern in one of MCC’s offices. Engage with MCC's International Volunteer Exchange Program (IVEP) by becoming a partner agency or host family. MCC offers young adult programs and service opportunities for all ages in many locations.

Find your place with MCC and join us in sharing God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ, responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. 
 

MCC staff are available to provide peacebuilding training to pastors, church leaders, Sunday School classes, schools and other groups. Contact EastCoast@mcc.org to request a speaker or check out our resource, “Peaceful Practices: A guide to healthy communication in conflict.”
