What We Do

Orion provides assistance to those in the Phoenixville area who find themselves:

In financial distress, homeless;
or otherwise facing difficult life challenges.

Our dedicated team of case managers serve as a single point of access to a range of services...from temporary housing to direct financial assistance, to support from various community and government agencies.  In addition, we offer programs for disadvantaged children and single moms, as well as a tech center and walk-in access to our case managers at our downtown Phoenixville location.

YOU have helped neighbors bridge challenging times for 45 years, thank you!

Looking forward to another 45 years of neighbors helping neighbors!

Because of you, our neighbors have received a helping hand for 45 years.
Friends of Orion have generously proposed a $45,000 matching challenge that allows you to double the impact of your gift!
Will you help us meet our goal and do twice the good work for our under-resourced neighbors?

What does your donation mean to Orion Communities?

  • It means we can give a woman and her children a place to stay for the night when they have lost their home and she needs time to develop a plan.
  • It means we provide a food gift card to a young couple with a baby to bridge the gap until the next paycheck.
  • It means we can provide bus fare for a man to get to work when his car broke down and he doesn’t have the funds for the repair just yet.
  • It means we can keep the lights on in the office so we can listen to our clients and help develop a plan to move towards increased self-reliance.
  • We are a 501(c) (3) certified organization – all donations are tax deductible!

No donation is too small. All of our funding comes from non-government sources and donations. Thank you for helping us help those facing poverty, mental illness, unemployment and unexpected life challenges.
