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 Helping People focuses their efforts on providing utility assistance. We also help with other basic needs such as medicine, eyeglasses, and items to maintain employment. Community members needing assistance should call our office to get the most up to date information on how to apply.

 Financial aid is determined on a per-household basis. Referrals to other agencies are always available.



Help Those In Need

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will repay him for his deed.” 

[Proverbs 19:17]
