Student Support & Assistance
An avid supporter of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), PCEF provides college-bound and undergraduate students help to enroll, continue and complete college or a program of study. Of particular concern are minority and students from low-income families that face inordinate challenges in obtaining quality education. Frequently students need some funds to get a meal, an introduction to someone or a church community where they are studying or help getting books for class. In other instances, the student needs a word of encouragement, mentoring or prayer, PCEF stands with students as they undertake their studies at HBCUs and other institutions of higher learning, which includes vocational and trade schools.
Families affected by natural disasters, such as hurricanes and wildfires frequently have urgent needs that cannot wait. Invariably, populations that are most severely affected by these incidents are the poor. The Foundation has been instrumental in being among the initial responders to provide support, critical resources and help to families in distress. Through fundraising and donation drives, PCEF has helped obtain food, medicines, clothing and other resources for delivery to the affected areas. The foundation has also organized and deployed teams of volunteers with specific skills necessary to meet the needs of the affected populations.
