Our Mission

People for People is a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York. Its purpose is to provide temporary assistance to residents with ties to the Times Herald-Record's readership area, which covers Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties, N.Y., and parts of Pike County, Pa. The People for People Fund was founded in 1985 by the Times Herald-Record and the Junior League of Orange County as a means of helping people in our communities help each other. Some operating expenses such as office space and utilities are provided to us at no cost.

The fund is staffed by trained volunteers and supervised by a paid part-time executive director. A Board of Directors meets regularly to oversee the operations of the Fund. Since its first campaign in 1985, the Fund has helped thousands of local residents resolve their problems and help them resume financial stability.
