STATE FUNDING COMES THROUGH

State Senator Andy Dinniman recently secured $50,000 in state funding for Good Works. The funds come through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Keystone Communities Program and will be matched by Good Works through a reimbursement program.

According to Beggs, this is the first time in memory that Good Works has received significant funding from the Commonwealth. The state funds will go to improving and rehabilitating the homes of an estimated 15 families throughout Chester County.

A Portrait of Good Works by Bryn Gillette

We are a Christian nonprofit organization which exists to improve the living conditions for low-income families in Chester County, PA. We transform substandard houses into warmer, safer, and drier homes; and despair into hope. Our services are offered to homeowners at no cost and volunteers do most of the repairs.

 

Our goal is to see the inhabitants of these homes rise above their level of poverty and experience a richness through being cared for and knowing that their circumstances matter to their community. We believe that everyone benefits when people from different races, cultures, and backgrounds join together in a common purpose.
