The Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce led a ribbon cutting ceremony to recognize the new office and growth of Orion Communities, a non-profit that serves the most vulnerable neighbors in the greater Phoenixville area.

Participating in the ribbon cutting event were two Chester County foundations that have been instrumental in Orion’s growth.

The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation provided a technology grant to update office technology as well as help with the implementation of a new web-based data management system.

The Chester County Community Foundation awarded Orion a ‘capacity building’ grant for several items including marketing materials, Orion’s first Annual Report and improvements to the physical office due to the dramatic increase in clients in the preceding year.

Orion Communities believes everyone is entitled to life’s basic essentials of shelter, food, clothing, transportation and medical services. With the support of generous donors and volunteers, Orion is able to increase their impact in serving those experiencing hardships in the community.

ORION HAS MOVED to 237 BRIDGE STREET!

237-Bridge-StWe’ve Moved – Come Meet the New Orion!

So much has happened at Orion in the past year – we have more clients, staff, volunteers, Board members and friends. So when our lease was up, we knew we had to look for a larger space to accommodate all of our neighbors because we were falling over each other.

Fortunately, we found the just the right space in the same block of Bridge Street, just 5 doors up!

There’s so much to see and tell!
Please join us for our OPEN HOUSE ON APRIL 13 between 4pm – 7pm
or stop by during our office hours Mon – Fri 9am-2pm or Tue & Thurs 6pm-8pm, we’d love to give you the tour.
