About Us

Welcome to Good Works, Inc.

A Portrait of Good Works by Bryn Gillette We are a Christian nonprofit organization which exists to improve the living conditions for low-income families in Chester County, PA. We transform substandard houses into warmer, safer, and drier homes; and despair into hope. Our services are offered to homeowners at no cost and volunteers do most of the repairs. Our goal is to see the inhabitants of these homes rise above their level of poverty and experience a richness through being cared for and knowing that their circumstances matter to their community. We believe that everyone benefits when people from different races, cultures, and backgrounds join together in a common purpose.

They are screened carefully through an application process including an initial intake form, a home visit by a volunteer, verification of all income sources, and a credit check. Most of the homeowners we assist are elderly, single parents, and individuals with physical disabilities.
