Our Mission

City of Refuge Evangelism (CORE) is a Christian ministry serving families in need in the Harrisburg area.  

Our goals are:

  • To share the love of Jesus Christ in practical ways by providing a helping "hand up" of Meals, Clothing, Blankets, Personal Hygiene Items and Household Cleaners to families in times of financial need.
  • To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ as we build relationships with program participants, To connect participants with a local church family in an effort to extend a network helping to address both physical and spiritual needs.
  • To enable participants to experience the joys of serving others by encouraging them to give volunteer time back to the program.
