Spreading Hope in Central Pennsylvania
New Hope Ministries exists to meet the basic human needs of low income and in-crisis families and individuals. Serving the Central Pennsylvania since 1982, this faith-based organization began when the churches in the area saw the overwhelming crisis that the people in their community - their neighbors - were facing. Decades later, New Hope is serving 8,669 families and continues to grow at eight different locations
New Hope is more than a food pantry. They offer a variety of serves, such as job placement, job training, GED classes, kids programs, cooking classes, budgeting classes, as well as fun events for the community through out the year.
A team of dedicated professionals manage the several branches, but in many ways the organization is run on volunteer power. This year, 2,000 volunteers offered their time to help proclaim New Hope’s vision show the love and hope of Christ by supporting their neighbors in need.
