Lancaster PA Ministries

Local Ministries Serving in Lancaster and Beyond

Lancaster County is fortunate to have a number of ministries and service organizations that strive to meet the needs of the needy and the unfortunate among us. Some minister to the poor or homeless, single parent families, or to women with unplanned pregnancies. Others strive to make ours a better society for all people.

Most of these ministries focus their efforts on Lancaster County, but some serve people throughout the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and around the world.

Also, many of these organizations are looking for support or for volunteers. You can also see our Volunteers page for local organizations of all kinds who are seeking volunteers.
