Major Service Projects
Book Scholarship Award
Over the last five years, we have awarded several book scholarships to students in the community. Applicants are required to fill out an application and submit an essay based on their career goal. These young adults are recognized at Community Day and receive a book scholarship for college.
Duquesne Community Day
The Duquesne Community Day in August anticipated 200-350 community members to attend. We had ten interactive information tables. We hope to increase health awareness by providing health screenings, activities, materials, demonstrations, and information. Our goal is to increase awareness of local health services and resources as well as to motivate participants to make positive health behavior changes.
Handy Person Program
In the community, we have young and older adults with and without disabilities who need help with things around the house like grass needing cut or lights that need to be changed. We check Angie’s List to find a person with credentials and is reputable in providing these services, and we provide funds to assist in the expenses.
Community Sewing Class
Sewing has become a lost art over the years. The Duquesne Family Support Center has four machines to teach this art to the young and old in the community who have expressed interest in learning.
