Penn College Human Services students are teaming up with Family Promise of Lycoming County Inc. to benefit and bring awareness to local homelessness challenges. Come join us as we sleep out, raise money, and collect supplies to make a difference!

BE the difference! Do without that latte today and instead feed a child, provide a bus fare, a warm bed, and some good food.

As students enrolled in a Service Learning course at the college, we are pleased to be working with Family Promise in bringing awareness to the growing problem in Lycoming County.

Homelessness in Williamsport has been steadily rising over recent years due to the challenging economy our nation faces. In the face of these economic challenges, funding for organizations like Family Promise has been slashed year after year despite ever growing populations needing their services. Our event will benefit Family Promise and the families and children who need their support.

Recent Progress: We had our first supply drive yesterday which was successful in spreading the word of our mission. Today we started working on signs for the Mummer's Parade we are participating in. Help us promote our "small-town" ideas into a global success! The more support we get the bigger impact this project will have!!!! Thank you to all those who are continuously supporting us!!
