This organization has great potential to assist our community and it performs a function in Columbia that no other organization can do. Without it, our Borough government, businesses and civic organizations will feel overwhelmed by the need to provide these essential services..

We need support from benefactors who are interested in fostering hope for our community, including our low income neighbors. Please consider making a donation to Columbia Life Network (either quarterly, bi-annually or annually), and together we can change the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community.
