American Red Cross Central PA
Mission Statement: The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Mission Statement: The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Our Vision: The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that... ...all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope; ...our communities are ready and prepared for disasters; ...everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products; ...all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and ...in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.
Since our founding by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to serving people in need. We received our first congressional charter in 1900 and to this day we are tasked by the federal government with providing services to members of the American armed forces and their families as well as providing disaster relief in the United States and around the world. In 2021, the Red Cross celebrated 140 years of compassionate service. Even while the Red Cross adapts to meet the changing needs of the people we serve, we always stay true to those roots. Are you familiar with the classic images of Red Cross nurses helping American soldiers and civilian war victims during World War I? In fact, as you read this Red Cross staff and volunteers are still deploying alongside America’s military. Maybe you’ve taken a class through the Red Cross, such as first aid certification or how to swim. Did you know we’ve been offering similar training since the early 1900s? Have you ever given blood or received donated blood? The Red Cross developed the first nationwide civilian blood program in the 1940s and we still provide more than 40% of the blood products in this country. Today, as throughout our long history, the Red Cross depends on generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support our lifesaving services and programs. Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services – from providing relief and support to those in crisis, to helping you be prepared to respond in emergencies.

LOHF (Lancaster Osteopathic Health Foundation)
Mission Statement: We elevate the mental well-being of youth and children in Lancaster County
Mission Statement: We elevate the mental well-being of youth and children in Lancaster County
Our Vision: Our vision is for all Lancaster County children and youth to experience mental well-being. We facilitate access to behavioral healthcare for youth and children, and develop the workforce to meet this need.
There is a supply and demand crisis in mental healthcare in Lancaster County, especially for youth and children. A shortage of mental healthcare providers leaves parents frustrated and primary care providers desperate for training and referral options to help patients. For two decades, LOHF has provided a community benefit to Lancaster County, PA, as a result of the sale in 1999 of Community Hospital (an osteopathic hospital). In 2014, we commissioned an in-depth assessment of mental and behavioral health needs of children and adolescents in Lancaster County and refined our focus to meet the needs. The focus of our current strategic plan is to tackle two big questions: 1) “How will we become more sharply focused on building the talent pipeline in behavioral healthcare to help us elevate the mental well-being of youth and children in Lancaster County?” and, 2) “How will we improve access to behavioral healthcare for youth and children?
