TIOGA COUNTY
Paul Gordon Collier

The weather is life-threatening for anyone trying to live outside.  Tioga County has homeless members of our community right now that need our help.  We posted this on our Facebook page and were led to the place we are featuring in this article.  Here is what we posted:

One of my Facebook friends posted this on their timeline “I pray this morning that all of our homeless have found a place to be warm today. Wish we would open all of our churches for them and go out and give out some warm items. Help us be your hands and feet Lord.”-

That made me think, in this bitter cold what are the ministries, organizations, churches that are working right now to help the homeless in Tioga County PA? If you know of one, post it here- if you are one, post it here. We will share all of these ministries, organizations and churches so our community knows where to go to donate, serve, refer those in need to during this bitter cold time. Paul

We came upon this organization that combines the effort of multiple churches and organizations to try to meet the needs of the homeless in this county.  From the website http://tiogahomeless.org/

The TCHI mission is to “establish a network of churches and other organizations within Tioga County which would provide a warm, safe, and caring environment for individuals and families who are homeless. Our long-term goal is to establish a centrally located Tioga County Homeless Shelter which will be able to address the needs of the homeless within Tioga County on a permanent basis. Until this long-term goal has been achieved, our short-term goal, as stated in our mission statement, is to build a faith-based network of churches and organizations to help homeless families and individuals have a warm place to sleep during the winter months.
