SCRC Mission Statement


The Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition is a collaborative effort to provide quality social services and youth programs that are accessible and safe and that recognize the dignity and worth of each person. Our goal is to help community members reach their full potential.

We work to fulfill our mission in the following ways: 

•    Working with existing programs in surrounding communities to                      encourage them to provide services in Shippensburg. 
•    Regularly assessing community needs and resources.
•    Creating new services as necessary. 
•    Partnering with other community programs to strengthen our collective            efforts.

Upcoming Events and Committee Meetings

#shipbekind Campaign


Kindness is contagious!

Now through January 17th, order your #shipbekind gear to wear on Fridays during the month of February! Click the following link: #shipbekind

Kindness causes a ripple effect. Research shows if you show kindness to one person, that person will show kindness to four people and those four people will show kindness to four more people and so on. These exchanges of kindness can positively impact our community and change the world.

With the support of the Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition (SCRC), students in the Shippensburg Area School District will be spreading kindness during the month of February through the #shipbekind campaign. Wear your 'be kind' gear every Friday in February (and all year round) to support this great initiative and spread the message that kindness matters!

OPEN to Anyone! If you work or volunteer with human service providers in the Shippensburg Area, come hear about local agency updates (including your own!) and learn about a specific topic or local agency's services.
