The Center for Humanistic Change is prepared to help support you and our community during the COVID-19 crisis. Our primary concerns, like yours, are the safety, health, and well-being of our dedicated staff, contractors, and those with whom we engage.  For this reason, we are suspending the delivery of programs on-site and instead will offer those programs remotely, using virtual platforms.

We’re able to do this thanks to the forward-thinking commitment and unfailing support of Lehigh and Northampton Counties, as well as other funders, who recognize the value of our services and who want to ensure that Lehigh Valley residents remain healthy emotionally, as well as physically. Toward that end, we are offering selected courses to students, faculty, business and community staff/groups, and parents/individuals, remotely and at no cost to you. The courses, which are available to individuals or small groups, will be offered in 30-, 45, or 60-minute segments.

To schedule a program, simply email or call 610-443-1595 to leave a voicemail message in the general mailbox.  One of our staff will get back to you to discuss your needs and arrange a time to deliver the program to your students or members of your team. For single-session video options, please click this link to our website: COVID-19 Online Programs and Resources. We will be posting them as they are recorded.

Please know that we’re here to support you during these unprecedented times.  Brighter days are coming.  Until then, be safe.

Nonprofit organizations are on the front lines addressing this pandemic, but we are also at risk due to evaporating revenue, new demands, and major disruptions in charitable giving.

Tell your member of Congress to provide emergency aid to nonprofit organizations in any COVID-19 legislation, including expanding charitable giving and providing organizations with grants, loans, and tax credits.

Visit the Independent Sector Policy Action Center to tell your legislators that Congress must provide emergency aid to nonprofit organizations and help secure billions of dollars in critical funding for our communities.
