COVID-19 CRISIS: An Important Announcement Regarding Food Security and Housing Stability for Our Community
The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities remains committed to meeting the
growing needs of our local at-risk neighbors, as well as families who are experiencing lost wages and layoffs.
Working together is our community strength!
Our community has stepped up big time to offer food resources to those in need. To harness the power of this collective action and to stretch the food resources beyond the initial crisis, we have agreed to coordinate the food insecurity resources in our area. Having a single point of contact will lessen duplication of service and will allow resources to stretch further. A single contact will also spread the services to be available over many days rather than all at once. If you are a business, organization or individual community member that is considering offering a community meal, food collection or other food related efforts, please consider contacting us at email@example.com
The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities is working with Your Way Home, in a new program, the Your Way Home Emergency Rent and Utility Coalition-CV Program (ERUC-CV), which may provide some assistance to individuals and families who are at risk of eviction and/or homelessness as a direct result of COVID-19.

Many have been reaching out to support our mission as we work to provide food security and housing stability to our at-risk neighbors and families in need during this critical time.
