Pike County Hands of Hope (PCHOH) is a Christ-centered organization dedicated to providing compassion and hope to Pike County’s homeless and near-homeless families and individuals by meeting their basic and urgent needs of food, clothing, and shelter.
The purpose of PCHOH is to empower homeless and near-homeless families and individuals by:
- Meeting their most basic and urgent needs and encouraging positive life changes through community-based programs which focus on spiritual growth, education, employment, life management, and recovery.
- Amplifying their voices, which is essential to the public policy debate, by raising public awareness through advocacy.
Our goal is to provide immediate assistance through referrals to appropriate government offices, social service agencies, and faith-based organizations. We are here to listen and offer our help where we can.
Pike County Hands of Hope began in 2011 when a group of concerned members of St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church sat around a table to discuss the plight of the homeless and near homeless of Pike County, PA. The organization has grown with the support of local churches and community organizations. Now governed by a non-denominational Board of Directors, PCHOH is a 501c3, not-for-profit Pennsylvania corporation, a United Way Agency, and a Volunteer Station for the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Berks, Pike, and Wayne County.
PCHOH will not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate in the provision of services or support against any person, religious belief, race, color, nation of origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or association preferences.
