Blossoms to Blessings-Flower Ministry

Our Pathway Ser­vices pro­gram par­ticipants con­tinual­ly teach us that in­dividu­als of all capabilit­ies can de­monstrate love and car­ing at­titudes towards oth­ers. Many peo­ple we come in con­tact with are sur­prised to learn that in­dividu­als with in­tel­lectu­al dis­abilit­ies are fully cap­able of con­tribut­ing to the com­mun­ity in many ways. The Blos­sums to Bless­ings Flow­er Minist­ry is one of those ways.

Working with flowers donated from local flowers shops our individuals create beautiful flower arrangements. These arrangements are then delivered by the individuals to retirement homes and businesses in both the York and Hanover area. Not only do the flowers lift the spirits of the recipients but the smiling faces of our individuals surely brighten the day of everyone they encounter.  Please contact us if you would like to make a donation to this outreach program. Please contact Desiree Irvin, Director of Advancement for more information at 717-747-9000 or desireeirvin@jandfcommunity.org

  Indian Rock Acres - Respite and Retreats

From the very be­ginn­ing of Jes­sica & Friends Com­mun­ity the de­sire to offer no cost re­spite to our parents and their famil­ies has been a part of our vis­ion. This dream be­came a rea­l­ity in late 2013 when the Sul­livan fami­ly gracious­ly gif­ted their be­auti­ful co­unt­ry es­tate to us for this pur­pose.
