Who We Are

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Started in 1971 by a group of local churches, Ephrata Area Social Services was formed with a commitment to the ideal of "Neighbors Helping Neighbors." In October of 1970, A Planning Committee challenged the community with a dream to become a "community of the concerned." To recognize that "in the midst of a flourishing economy, there are those in need who are all but forgotten to their community." It is with those inspirations that EASS has grown to be a provider of diverse services capable of meeting an ever increasing demand from Neighbors in need.

EASS is a non-profit organization serving the Ephrata and Cocalico Regions of Northern Lancaster County. The criterion for eligibility is the expression of a legitimate need for help. EASS receives its support from the community. Donations come from churches, civic organizations, private individuals, businesses and local foundations. EASS receives no public funds...

Ephrata Area Social Services, a tradition of reliability, providing services to those in need living in the Ephrata and Cocalico region.
