Our site is located just two short blocks away from the fire department, one block from our county assistance office, a few blocks away from Williamsport Hospital, our state representative’s office (Jeff Wheeland) is located just a mile or so away from our site.

Our partners are mostly located within a couple miles of our site which makes programming consistent (not many issues with travel and weather).
