The goal of the Pine Street Committee, Inc. (PSC) is to work cooperatively and network with government, organizations, businesses, and individuals to help our County and the City of Cambridge to make life’s economic and revitalization challenges less of a burden. To provide safe artistic, recreational and cultural activities for the youth of our communities. Also, help enhance productive and positive inroads that will continually build and open doors for a diverse cultural networking throughout our County and the City of Cambridge.

------------A Little History---------------

The Pine Street Committee, Inc. was incorporated April 23, 1997. Public input was solicited as to what Cambridge and County residents thought was needed to make the Pine Street corridor a safer place for all residents, the type of businesses needed on Pine Street, who to approach for technical assistance, a timeline to achieve identified goals and objectives.

The Pine Street Committee, Inc. is comprised of local citizens of various socio-economic status. The members are volunteers and no membership dues are required. Meetings are usually held the first Monday of each month (no holidays).

Partnering with the Pine Street Committee we have been responsible for providing some ex-offenders employment, educational, and business entrepreneurial opportunities that have enhanced their lives and provided economic opportunities. In addition, we have provided upward mobility educational scholarships for some of our customers who have received graduation certificates which have opened doors to additional employment opportunities.

Our computer literacy lab is utilized by many in our community to develop basic computer skills. During our Summer Youth Enrichment 2009 Program kids upgraded their computer skills which will hopefully benefit them this school year in the classroom.

Another successful project has been the Annual Multi-Cultural Festival held for the last 3 years on Pine Street in Cambridge, MD. The festival usually attracts over 350 people annually.
