Helping Families

By offering a safe place to temporarily live and the intentional help of a team of skilled and compassionate neighbors, we can help our neighbors most in need to enter into new seasons of life and health.

Our mission is to serve families within the East Penn School District through multi-faceted short-term assistance in order to help restore and sustain healthy, independent living. 

Our Misson

“If it were not for the people who allowed us to get this home and helped maintain us while we got our feet together, I cannot tell you or imagine where we would be with our kids. I cannot tell you the joy in our hearts to tell our kids they were going to have a bed to sleep in. But we were not just helped with shelter. We were helped with food, clothing, adjusting to a new budget, and connecting to resources in the Lehigh Valley.

“This experience has made our family stronger. Now we are in our new home and sitting in our own furniture, which was in storage for almost three years. 

“While the homeless face enormous hardships every day, their situations are often made worse by being ignored. The first step to solving any social issue is acknowledging its existence.  Instead of turning our heads, why not try to find a solution.  I hope that many of you will help out, as you will be helping a family like mine.."
