Who We Are

Local Churches provide shelter sites from October through April.  We have  a Resource Center where our guests can shower, do their laundry, apply for jobs and services, re-establish independence and improve the quality of their lives.

Our paid staff consists of a full time Director and three part-time Support Service Coordinators. These experienced staff provide the support and coordination of services offered by Gettysburg CARES in both locations. The primary focus of all these services and supports is to assist and support our guests as they seek to re-enter the community.

Participating Host Churches

As Gettysburg C.A.R.E.S. is in its seventh year of operation, we look forward to  serving the Gettysburg area. This is made possible in partnership with these fourteen host churches:

Christ Lutheran

First Baptist


Freedom Valley

Gettysburg Church of the Brethren

Gettysburg Presbyterian

Gettysburg United Methodist

Great Conewago Presbyterian


Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian

Memorial Baptist

Prince of Peace Episcopal

St. James Lutheran

Trinity United Church of Christ

Although the guests only sleep at fourteen churches, there are many churches who we are blessed to partner with throughout the year!
