New Hope Ministries offers food, rent assistance, and employment resources to meet the increased needs of newly under- and unemployed adults in northern Adams County impacted by COVID-19. Funded in part by the Partnership for Better Health, New Hope staff and volunteers are available to meet in person or over the telephone with Adams County residents specifically living in rural communities north of Route 234, including East Berlin, York Springs, Gardners, and Biglerville, to help with emergency needs including food, rent and mortgage assistance, utility assistance, and help with finding a job.
If a person or family living in northern Adams County is facing an economic hardship and needs emergency assistance, they are encouraged to contact New Hope Ministries at (717) 432-2087 ext. 1 for more information.
If a person or family living within any of New Hope’s service areas is facing an economic hardship and needs emergency resources to help pay a housing bill such as rent, utility, or a security deposit, due to COVID-19, they are encouraged to contact the New Hope Center they live closest to. Our locations and phone numbers can be found here.
If you do not live in our service area, please call 2-1-1 to find an agency that can help with emergency housing needs.
