Jesus said, "I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes . . ."

Matthew 25

People Helping People is an ecumenical crisis ministry of churches and faith communities serving Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Virginia.

We are an organization whose purpose is to: 

  •  Coordinate services for people in need;

  • Partner with our clients by helping them with assistance they may require;

  • Improve the quality of life for individuals and families in our community.


What We Do

People Helping People (PHP) volunteers are trained and equipped to interview clients, assess their needs, and help them obtain the necessary assistance--either directly or by networking with other helping services in the area. We provide aid to over 2,000 families each year.

People needing financial assistance or other basic needs (examples include: medicine, work shoes, birth certificates, IDs, food for diabetics and children, etc.) may come to the office and apply for assistance. Financial aid is determined on a per-household basis. Referrals to other agencies are always available.
