Pike County Hands of Hope

Pike County Hands of Hope, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, was created in 2011 to provide compassionate assistance to Pike County PA residents who are homeless or near homeless.

The homeless, to many people, are largely invisible. Unless you know where to look, you would not know how to find them. Perhaps spending the night in a parking lot at a shopping center or at some hidden campsite in the woods. Oftentimes the homeless find themselves sleeping on the floor in the home of a relative or friend who has taken them in.

PCHOH’s top priority is keeping families from facing the crisis of homelessness and/or helping someone about to lose their home to find an apartment to live in.
