There is Hope in York

I attended a gathering of local non-profit organizations today at Calvary United Methodist Church in York, on Richland Avenue. I think there were almost 50 people there. They call themselves Hope Church, and their mission is inspiring.

"Promoting mutually respectful and cooperative work and conversation among local churches, agencies and organizations, schools, and businesses for the sake of offering hope to the community that we share."

There were churches working to eradicate homelessness, non-profits empowering those with mental illness, children's advocacy groups, a free health clinic, an interfaith group for justice planning an event to commemorate the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, etc. It was so inspiring to represent the Pachamama Alliance in a room of local changemakers.

This group meets on the fourth Monday of every month at 1:00pm. Each organization takes a turn at presenting their work to the group, and then each participant has the floor for a brief description of their work in the community. There is a very intentional sharing of written materials, ideas, resources and hope.

If you are doing the work of creating a world that works for everyone, consider joining this powerful networking group. You can find them here:

If you want to help serve in our community but aren't sure where to start, this group is a great place to get connected.
