Paducah Cooperative Ministry

Doing God’s Work with Human Hands

Fresh Start


In the right set of unfortunate circumstances, anyone can become displaced and find themselves without a home to call their own. Sadly, people experiencing the trauma of homelessness are a uniquely underserved population in our region.



PCM provides a 2-3 day supply of emergency groceries to families in crisis once a month up to five times in any given one-year period. Temporary hot, cooked meals are provided to elderly convalescing individuals referred by area hospitals.

Food Pantry


Surprises happen all the time. We all have them. Some are wonderful and we are so grateful! However, others are not. Car accidents, unexpected loss of income, onset of a serious illness or injury, a relationship that crashes, utility bills that go through the roof.

About PCM

Paducah Cooperative Ministry is an inter-faith ministry founded in 1973 by and for local congregations. The ministry belongs to these congregations, who ask us, and enable us, to do the work that we do each day on their behalf. PCM is governed by this membership.

PCM is a United Way partner agency

United Way of Paducah-McCracken County

Vision Statement

By examining needs, determining priorities and strategies, and implementing action, the Paducah Cooperative Ministry seeks to:

Provide programs and services to meet human needs

Promote a spirit of trust and cooperation among individuals and groups to meet the needs of our local community

Give visibility to human needs in the city of Paducah and McCracken County

Encourage community organizations to work together to meet these needs.

A eight-member staff, led by the Executive Director, Heidi Suhrheinrich, handles the daily operations, while the 16-member Board of Directors elected from participating congregations oversees their work. The ministry is supported by annual financial and in-kind donations and pledges from member congregations, individuals, businesses, and organizations.

We operate in accordance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or familial status.

Thank you all who supported WKMS and voted for PCM!
PCM has 4 solid oak pews, each approximately 12 feet long.  We cant use them any longer but we want them to continue to be used.  Anyone is welcome to have them all, or one or three.  Whatever is needed. Theyre really beautiful things.
