Our Mission

To engage in work among the needy by providing immediate assistance and long-term services that help guide individuals, regardless of their race or religion, toward the path of self-reliance in a manner consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Senior citizens, students, veterans, families, working poor and others... everyone needs a helping hand sometime. We believe you have to meet someone's immediate needs before they can begin to focus on long-term goals. We assist with these basic needs while helping to work on a plan for self-sufficiency.

Basic Human Needs - Emergency food; emergency assistance for rent, utilities, life-sustaining prescriptions; transportation assistance; and clothing vouchers.

Maintain Self-Reliance – St. Martin Early Learning Center, a Keystone STAR 4 facility; PA WORKWEAR, which provides clothing to men for job interviews and employment; financial literacy counseling; homebuying education; Fair Housing and Predatory Lending; and more.
