Hometown Heroes – Allegany Hope WNY – Casey Jones – 1/23/24

January 23, 2024

It’s “Hometown Heroes” on Family Life

Today’s guest on “Hometown Heroes” is Casey Jones of Allegany Hope, a Christian organization focused on building healthy communities through healthy families.

Allegany Hope has, for 15 years now, brought together local congregations and other Christian organizations to streamline and multiply their efforts to change lives. As you will hear in this podcast, Jones says the goal is to bring about holistic health to their neighbors — physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Jones has seen positive results in bringing church leaders together to move beyond discussion of community issues and needs into actions which bring these benefits to life.

One of the visible, ongoing projects is a Facebook page which publicizes what God is doing among the people of their town. They also have become a hub for posting community news, church events, a workshop on emergency preparedness for households (February 8), and other activities to connect with the local region. The Allegany Hope Community Calendar publicizes events such as Bible studies, Autism workshops and more.

Allegany Hope is centered in Friendship, New York. You can find out more online from their Facebook and website.
