How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

AHPS currently is restoring the Calvary Chapel Area for the restoration cost of approximately $60,000. We are working hard to raise the final $10,000 necessary for completion of the project. Another project related to Calvary is a fire alarm system that will protect the valuable restoration accomplished which to date totals over $2.5 million. This will provide the safety for this irreplaceable historic community asset. The cost of this project is estimated to be slighly over $32,000.

Program 1

Historic Calvary United Methodist Church

The restoration of the Historic Calvary United Methodist Church continues to be a work in progress. Calvary is not only a magnificent historic landmark, it has become the Allegheny West community anchor. Calvary reaches out into the community to provide important services and provides a key community meeting place. The major restoration of securing the church from further decline has been achieved. There is approximatly $200,000 in restoration projects to be accomplished. The budget for the sustainability of the AHPS organization is currently $48,000 which reflects management expense of only one part-office manager. Fund raising goals are based on the total restoration project to be completed on the particular program, for example the Calvary program with the completion estimated at $200,000.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"AHPS recogonizes and continues to express sincere thanks to all of the invaluable contributions given for the restoration efforts at Calvary. These past contributions strongly indicate how the Pittsburgh region values the impact that this historic landmark brings to community at large.  The importance of historic preservation is even greater today as we now place a more important value on preserving natural resources and  importance of history that enriches neighborhoods with community pride and sustainability. This results in economic development. In an environmnt such as this, artistitic achievement is also developed."
