Welcome to Good Works, Inc.
We are a Christian nonprofit organization whose mission is: Transforming lives by repairing homes for low-income families and sharing 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.
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
Good Works is more than repairing homes.
We also transform lives by sharing the hope found in Jesus Christ.

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."
