About this organization
Habitat for Humanity of Berks County is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ecumenical Christian charitable organization which exists to create affordable home ownership opportunities with and for moderate-income families. Families who purchase Habitat for Humanity homes must first contribute 300 hours labor on a Habitat home, a contribution we call “sweat-equity”. Homes are sold to the families at no profit, and financed with low-interest mortgages. We rely on volunteers and families contributing sweat-equity for the “un-skilled” labor needed to build the homes. Working in this way, we believe we provide families a “hand-up” rather than a “hand-out" while also providing a way for good people to assist hard-working families in our community.

Wags Rescue & ReferralSouthampton, PA
Wags Rescue & Referral is a small group of volunteers from Bucks County, Philadelphia and Montgomery County, PA that started because they wanted to help dogs affected by Hurricane Katrina by placing them in loving and safe homes. Although Hurricane Katrina prompted a group of people such as ourselves to reach out and help, there are still many other natural disasters that continue to give us a reason to keep going and rescue animals. Wags continues to work with a shelter down south to find loving families for their dogs. We save dogs from gassing shelters in the south and bring them to foster homes in Pennsylvania until we can find them a forever family. To do this, the dogs first spend time with fosters in their home states until they are brought up to date on shots and receive veterinary certification to come to Pennsylvania. Once in PA, they stay with their foster families. To help get these dogs adopted, we hold adoption events almost every week. The events are open to the public.
