Our Story


Here For a Reason began as a concept, a belief that every person has something to give, every person possesses a unique skill set that brings value and depth to our society.

Because we believe this, we also believe that together we can find solutions to the issues that hold us up and keep us struggling. By combining our unique passions and abilities we can be a force for real, lasting change within the region of NorthEast PA. In the last few years, we have been able to mobilize hundreds of volunteers and provide over 30,000 meals to those in need here in Scranton. Our goal is to maintain 30,000 meals a year and branch out into other ventures, providing more opportunities to bring together people's passion to serve with those in need. HOW TO GET INVOLVED We depend upon people who realize that they can use their unique abilities and passions to better the community they live in. You can be part something bigger than yourselves. You are here for a reason.
