The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center is a special place where “Neighbors Help Neighbors.”

For individuals and families of all ages, PNC provides an essential center of support.  We are a resource for basic needs for people experiencing financial hardship, and help local residents with acquiring things like food support, living supplies, housing and utility assistance, and even direction for government support like the SNAP program.

We also help Seniors connect and become more fulfilled in their daily lives through events and activities, transportation when needed and other services.
