The Warwick Compassion Network (WCN) began as a network of churches in Lititz, wanting to address the challenges of poverty in the Warwick and Lititz areas. The churches wanted to be actively involved in creating transformational opportunities that holistically address poverty in the Warwick School District.
Christians in Lititz meeting the basic need of the community through:
- Network that wisely stewards available resources;
- Collaborations that work in the best interest of those experiencing poverty;
- Discernment that aligns with God’s heart around the actual need.
The WCN accomplishes this mission through Energy Assistance, Transition in Place with Home of Hope, and the Lititz Project.
People who have exhausted LIHEAP can qualify for up to $400 in energy assistance within a one-year period. Potential recipients must contact Love, INC at 717-735-7540 to determine eligibility. Donations to the Energy Fund can be sent to:

Transistion in Place with Home of Hope
The Transition in Place program is part of the Love, INC Home of Hope ministry that addresses homelessness. In the name of Christ, Transition in Place particularly relates to people facing eviction in the Warwick/Lititz community. A person or family is provided with rental assistance and supportive resources such as mentoring, budget counseling, and other community resources to holistically transform the situation that led to their eviction.
If you are interested in providing financial assistance, please send your tax deductible contribution to:
c/o Warwick Home of Hope

The Lititz Project consists of churches networking together to do service projects in the neighborhood. Once a year, the churches invite people in the Lititz/Warwick region to request home repair assistance. People struggling with financial challenges or a disability can request assistance. The person must be the home owner to qualify to submit a request.
