Penn Community Bank supports Village of Hope


Penn Community Bank has donated $10,000 to support Penn Foundation’s Village of Hope, a temporary housing program for homeless adults in Bucks County who have been diagnosed with both a mental health and a substance abuse disorder.

The Village of Hope is located on the campus of Penn Foundation in Sellersville. Residents stay at the Village of Hope for an average of nine months but can stay up to two years if needed, all the while having access to Penn Foundation services.

“The support that community leaders like Penn Community Bank give us is critical,” said Don Detweiler, director of the Village of Hope. “We have been fortunate to find community partners who understand the importance of continuing this work.”

Supporting local housing initiatives such as the Village of Hope is a vital part of Penn Community Bank’s philanthropic mission. The bank also supports the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter and has donated financial support and volunteer time to Habitat for Humanity for Bucks County.

“At Penn Community Bank, we understand the roles that safe, affordable housing and the provision of mental health services play in building a thriving community,” said Todd R. Hurley, executive vice president, chief relationship officer, Penn Community Bank. “When we help our most vulnerable neighbors, we make life better for everyone.”
