Welcome to Good Works, Inc.

A Portrait of Good Works by Bryn Gillette

We are a Christian nonprofit organization which exists to transform lives by repairing homes for low-income families and share the hope found in Jesus Christ. Our services are currently offered to homeowners in central & northern Chester County, PA.  Repairs are provided  at no cost to the homeowners and volunteers do most of the work.  

 

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

Good Works is more than repairing homes. 

We also transform lives by sharing the hope found in Jesus Christ.

2021 Annual Report

Good Works 2021 Annual Report entitled "Transformation" highlights the challenges and accomplishments of a year that included Omicron, hyper-inflated building material prices and Tropical Storm Ida.  Yet through it all, God worked life-transforming miracles in the lives of the residents and the volunteers who served.  Homes repaired and hope restored was never more evident than in 2021.

Bringing Hope Home

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."
