Our Purpose and Objectives
To increase access to social services and counseling services.
To increase access to youth programming.
To partner with existing stakeholders such as the school district and Shippensburg University to meet educational and community needs.
The SCRC was started in 2010 in response to the growing need to help residents find and utilize social services. Shippensburg falls between the counties of Franklin and Cumberland which means that services can be difficult for community members to access if the services extend to Shippensburg at all. The Resource Coalition has brought service providers and community members together since this time, with the aim of connecting clients with resources as well as developing programs to meet needs.
