Community of Hope
Community of Hope is a comprehensive program that helps residents of the Hannah Penn K-8 neighborhood get connected to the resources, education and support they need to thrive. The program bridges gaps to promote positive changes in families.
Housed in the Hannah Penn K-8 building in York, the Community of Hope program offers a family resource center where staff can work with neighbors to provide computer access; health, clothing and household needs as well as coaching support that connects participants with Community Progress Council’s full slate of services.
The family resource center also includes a WIC clinic to serve the residents of the Hannah Penn neighborhood.
Our goal is to partner with existing community services to bridge gaps and build protective capacities to promote positive change within our families, ultimately creating an evolution of hope right here in our neighborhood.
FAMILY ACTIVITIES AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
Regularly scheduled events and activities for children and families are a way of engaging with neighbors of the Hannah Penn neighborhood and connecting them to services.
Whether a resident needs to compile a resume, apply for a job or assistance program, or just needs somewhere to print a document, the family resource center is available for use.
REFERRALS TO COMMUNITY RESOURCES
CPC’s team of coaches are available to help residents identify their immediate and long-term needs and provide connections within CPC and to other community agencies.
