Welcome to Good Works, Inc.

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.

You Gave us Lift!   We exceeded the goal.  THANK YOU!

Good Works founder, Jim Ford  has chronicled the story of Good Works from its genesis in 1988 until 2014 when he retired as its Director.  Bringing Hope Home is Jim's first book and it captures both his personal journey and that of the organization he founded.  Jim's story captures how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.   All proceeds from the sale of the book go directly to Good Works and its mission of repairing homes and restoring hope.  

 

"Inspiring!  This book will be an encouragement to anyone who feels God is calling them to do something they don't feel prepared to do."
