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