About Us

People Helping People is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization supported by our areas churches and community members. 
Organized in 1992 to meet the needs of the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County, PHP provides services for more than 2,000 area families each year.

People Helping People began with just a vision to help people who were facing financial crisis.  A local social worker, Wilhelmina Johnson, saw that after leaving her office people were going from church to church seeking further assistance. She knew that the if the faith communities united the help could be even greater. What started as just a few churches believing as a vision has grown now to over 50 congregations supporting our mission. 

People Helping People is possible only through the generosity of our community support and the dedication of our volunteers.
