The work of Pike County Hands of Hope is made possible only through the hard work of our volunteers and the funding we receive. We are in need of volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors and on our Hope Line.
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.
The Hope Line is the first point of contact for Pike County residents facing hunger and homelessness issues. Volunteers monitor the Hope Line for messages and then call the individuals to assess their situation and provide appropriate guidance and assistance. Sometimes this is in the form of referrals to other agencies, or we will arrange for emergency housing. Other times we are able to start the process in providing a rental security deposit subsidy.
Pike County Hands of Hope will provide training and continuous support as well as the resources required. Hope Line volunteers can monitor the Hope Line once a month, twice a month, or even once a week…it is very flexible!
We are also in need of volunteers to head up our Outreach Program and to serve on our Board of Directors.
Board Member: Be a person who sustains this service with your insight and leadership. Oversee operations, set policy, reach out to our public supporters, spread the good news of help and support to our neighbors. Our Board meets once a month. Board members devote from three to ten hours a month on Hands of Hope activity.
Outreach Volunteer: This role provides more in-depth service to our
clients with regard to arranging placement, securing additional funding, and other activities.
