In Crisis?

Join the Mission

The future we envision for the Lancaster community is simple – it is one where everyone thrives. We design innovative, person-centered programming intended to transform generational poverty into economic prosperity, and we walk alongside folks in navigating the path they lay out for themselves toward their vision of thriving for themselves and their family.  

Many hands make light work, and this work of empowering our neighbors belongs to all of us. Because when our neighbors thrive, so does our entire community. We invite you to partner with us, in whatever capacity you are able, in working toward a thriving Lancaster community for everyone.
