More than 13%

of people in our region


live below the poverty line

(That’s higher than the national average.)

Issues like:

80,810 people facing food insecurity in PA District 12

1,643 people with Drug Use Disorder in Lycoming County

25 % of residents lacking health insurance in Snyder County

affect our homes and cities throughout North Central PA.

We’re on a mission to transform these statistics.

By managing investments of donor funds—and reinvesting the gains back into the community—we’re making progress all the time.
