The Perrysburg Heights Community Association was established for the purpose of promoting and improving pride and the quality of life among all the residents of the Perrysburg Heights area. Through involving the community in educational, social, recreational and neighborhood improvement programs, a new beginning and image will become a reality for the Heights community. The Association works to develop individual pride and self-worth by empowering individuals and promoting total community participation in its programs.
PHCA since its inception in 1991, has developed partnerships with many agencies; has created volunteer and service programs with our area universities, colleges, and local school administration and staff. We feel it is extremely important to continue to develop relationships with programs that mirror the ideals of our organization. PHCA is ready to expand the services we provide by effectively developing priority lists, timelines and programs that offer more diversity in structure to the overall community of Wood County.
By establishing a strong volunteer base, PHCA has been able to bring to fruition many if its dreams! Take a look at what we’ve done so far: Maintained high quality programming, raised funds to establish a park and community center, provided after-school tutoring, drug prevention programs, utilized county community service workers, BGSU students earning course credit for educational support and service-learning, Adult Education programs such as GED completion, Boys and Girl Scout Troops, Preschool Story Hour, Arts & Craft Programs, Resume & Cover Letter Service, Computer Classes, Sr. Citizens Group, Community Clean-up Projects, and a Community Newsletter.
PHCA has accomplished much of what it originally set out to do, but we are far from finished. Future plans include these projects: support groups, cooking clubs, spanish lessons, and on-going fund-raising efforts such as: Annual Giving Campaign, Mexican American Festival, and much more.
