York City Community of Hope

York City Community of Hope

THE MISSION OF COMMUNITY OF HOPE

 

To increase resilience in children, youth and families of the Hannah Penn neighborhood of York City through innovative practices that encourage neighborhood participation and engaged community partnerships.

 

 

 

A VIBRANT COMMUNITY IN NEED

 

The Hannah Penn neighborhood is rich with culture, diversity, and an entrepreneurial spirit. It is peppered with evidence of the arts, historic architecture, and a recent birth of community cohesion between neighbors and business owners. However, there are a staggering number of reports of child abuse and neglect, coupled with an alarming number of children who are placed outside of their homes. Small, concerned discussions, led by Casey Family Programs, turned into a collaborative effort between the County of York, the City of York the School District of the City of York. The final result, based on a number of data points, was the decision to build a Community of Hope.

 

What followed were rigorous and crucial conversations that helped us to better understand the strengths and needs of our community. At York City Community of Hope, 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.

 

In 2020, Community of Hope became part of Community Progress Council, York County’s community action agency. This relationship brings incredible opportunity to Community of Hope, Hannah Penn, CPC and the neighborhoods we collectively serve.
