Our Mission & Vision
Olivia's House is an organization of caregiving professionals and volunteers committed to supporting grieving children. Its purpose is to facilitate healing through grief and loss education.
As the premier free-standing, independent grief and loss center, we are dedicated to having the capabilities to support the growing needs of the community. In doing so, Olivia's House will become the primary resource for local and national grief and loss education.
Olivia's House relies on community-minded individuals and organizations to help us continue our mission of serving grieving families.

The York Rescue Mission began in 1962 with the objective to offer food, clothing, shelter and spiritual guidance for the poor and needy of York County. We have continued to develope this vision for over 50 years!
Our goal is Service above Self and to be Christ-like; inviting men, women and children to accept the Savior whom God sent into the world (John 3:16). We meet the basic human needs of the many we serve, as well as equip, train, nurture and guide them toward a better quality of life.
Poverty and despair are at an all time high in our community! In 2011 we served 197, 531 total meals and provided overnight shelter for 7,048 needy men, women and children. The YRM is committed to being an important part of the solution.
Please browse our site, http://www.yorkrescuemission.org/, to learn more about us and the many different ministries that we offer. We pray that you will consider becoming a part of this vital outreach.
The funds raised for the York Rescue Mission last year provided 3,900 meals for the needy in York City.
In 2009, Christine Gelatt founded Freedom 4/24 on the simple conviction that human beings are not commodities. After witnessing an adolescent girl being purchased for $24 in Thailand, she dreamt of ways to be a conduit of change by mobilizing people who share her conviction and banding together to bring an end to the injustice of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The founding team thought, what if we
used that same number, $24, and showed people how even a small sum of money can be used to bring lasting, holistic freedom rather than oppression, shame and hopelessness? With that thought in mind, our Run For Their Lives race series was organized as
a way to practically fulfill our mission of mobilizing individuals to stand against this injustice.
Since 2009, we have continually reexamined and expanded our focus to include not only Thailand, but any place where women and children are trafficked and
sexually exploited. We partner with Christ-centered organizations that are committed to ending this exploitation by bringing justice to wrongdoers or by
providing shelter and rehabilitation to survivors.
