Community Partners:

  • The Harrisburg Catholic Worker House: Discover the soul of the diverse neighborhood of Allison Hill through works of mercy: urban gardening, food bank, furniture & clothing ministry and community dinner assistance. The Harrisburg Catholic Worker House began in November of 1996, when two men of faith and compassion recognized the need for housing and hospitality for homeless men coming out of prison with drug and alcohol addictions.
    Saturday mornings from 9am-noon

  • The Joshua Farm: Get to the roots of organic gardening and service to at-risk youth at this large urban garden near the heart of Harrisburg. Volunteers will help harvest fruits and vegetables to sell at the farm’s biweekly farm market. They will also help run the farm market and prepare the farm for winter.¬†
    Mondays 2-4:30pm and Tuesdays 2-5pm

  

  • Project SHARE Food Bank: On SHARE's monthly food distribution days, volunteers will serve people who rely on this ministry for food, clothing, and other essentials.  Click here to see a video what Project SHARE is all about!
