Our mission is: Transforming lives by repairing homes for low-income families and sharing the hope found in Jesus Christ. Founded in 1988, Good Works is a faith based nonprofit dedicated to helping families living with serious health and safety issues. We turn unhealthy and inadequate houses into warmer, safer, drier homes, and despair into hope. We serve families in 49 of the 73 Chester County municipalities through staging sites in Coatesville, West Chester, Phoenixville, and St. Peters. Applicants must own and live in the home, participate in repairs (as possible), have property taxes paid to date, and meet income guidelines. Most of the homeowners we assist are elderly, single parents, or individuals with disabilities. Our services are provided at no cost and volunteers do most of the repairs.Improving a home's physical condition also improves the quality of life for everyone in the household and makes it possible for the family to keep and remain in the home.
