What makes it unique

Peniel means "For I have seen the face of God" and is located on Eastern Ave between Franklin and Wealthy. The house finds itself nestled between three unique and diverse neighborhoods: East Hills/Eastown, Baxter and Madison. It’s a growing and evolving community, with countless restaurants, shops, parks and entertainment options within walking distance.


This location provides for many different types of service opportunities, cultural experiences and opportunities to get to know the neighbors. Peniel partners with Eastern Ave CRC to support programs such as the Saturday food pantry and the K-12 tutoring program, where students are matched with one child for the entire school year.
