Our Story

Between Friends Outreach, Inc., "BFO," is a 100% volunteer, faith based, nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency. We work with homeless, low income & Veterans in our community. Every dollar our community donates is tax deductible and used directly for our clients. We work one-on-one with clients in Bucks and Montgomery County by providing resources to prevent homelessness and to assist clients transitioning out of homelessness. BFO provides emergency shelter, meals, counseling, drug/alcohol treatment, budgeting skills, medical care, employment assistance, and housing assistance resources. We do everything such as assisting with utility bills, sober living, court cases, deliver complete holiday meals, assist with going to the prom, setting up a child’s first bedroom, and our favorite: supplying hundreds of local children with Christmas gifts.

We feel no one should have to suffer due to a financial hardship. Everyone needs a hand up at one time or another. We are just volunteers helping out fellow community members.


We are there for the initial crisis. The way BFO differs and makes such an impact is, we are there for the long haul. You can only live what you've been taught, so we teach our clients new life skills or they will be a client again a few months down the road. A simple roof over their head won’t fix anything if you can't get to HOW and WHY this happened and work on that!


I love what we do and I hope you can find it in your heart to donate or even make a monthly pledge and make an impact in people's lives. Please help us! #BeTheDifference

Mr. Carlos Cope (pictured with Tara) is a wonderful friend of BFO. He is always right there with a helping hand and solution for any Veteran. This man gets things done. He is the kindest, most gentle giant. Thank you for your service Sir, and thank you for all you do for our clients!

WE NEED YOU to make a difference

 
 

We survive on public donations and fundraisers alone. There are people in our very own community struggling. It breaks my heart when I hear someone refers to them as “Those people”, or assume all homeless are substance abusers. First, we drug test every client. If drugs are an issue we seek treatment. Most of America is living a few paychecks away from disaster. It just takes a few unfortunate things to happen and then you find you are behind on the mortgage/rent and car payment. If you lost your job, had a serious illness, had a major repair bill or a sudden death in the family, you would realize how quickly you would be one of “those people”. We have seen it all and when people do not have anyone else, where are they to turn? These clients have turned to BFO and we are happy to assist them!

We need your help! We are 100% volunteer and rely on donations to assist our clients. We need you to share our mission, share our passion. PLEASE DONATE. No amount is too small. We have such an amazing success rate, we are truly making a difference in our clients lives. THAT IS THANKS TO YOU!

All of our referrals come from county, schools, police, other agencies, and a few from word of mouth.
