American Rescue Workers is a non-profit organization providing life-saving interventions to those experiencing food insecurity or homelessness in Central Pennsylvania since 1934. At American Rescue Workers, we operate three homeless shelters including a 24-bed family emergency shelter for men, women, and children, a 42-bed men’s long-term work rehabilitation program, and a 6-bed men’s emergency shelter. Our Social Services Center serves as the prevention entity of the organization, where we provide financial and food assistance to those in need to prevent a homeless crisis. Annually, through the Social Services Center, we provide hundreds of households with rental and utility assistance, nearly half a million pounds of groceries to as many as 4,000 families facing food insecurity, and $25,000 in vouchers for clothing and furniture. American Rescue Workers' programs are funded through the resale and recycling of donated goods and by the generous support of our donors.
