Why We Are Here

Christian Services was birthed in 1981 by Helen Warren who had a passion for bringing those with needs together with those who had resources to share.  We are proud of our beginning and of the many programs and services we provide for Lancaster County today.  Christian Services became a 501(C)3 in 2005 and is unique among local non-profits because 80% of our agency operating revenue is generated from our Family Store and Bowling Center.  Our Food Pantry, Family Store, Bowling/Community Center and Life Skills workshops employ 29 full-time and part-time employees.
