CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall work of Church World Service, particularly grassroots development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community.
CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs - something CWS has learned through 70 years of working in partnership around the world.

A Woman's Place
A Woman's Place, Bucks County's ONLY Domestic Violence response organization, is here for you and ready to help. The values of AWP - courage, creativity, equality, integrity, respect, and social justice were created so that AWP can be a life-saving resource for anyone experiencing intimate partner violence. Those same values are why we are continuing to deliver our mission through our 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, victim response advocacy legal assistance, and prevention education. This is not an either/or. AWP's response is a both/and.
