Welcome!

Welcome to the Heart of Williamsport, a Community Heart & Soul® project that actively seeks the collective wisdom of all citizens, including those whose voices are often missing, to bring people together to build stronger, healthier, and more economically vibrant community.

Our Heart of Williamsport mission is to collect stories from our diverse community, identify what people value, and share this information to guide Williamsport’s future.

We use storytelling as a way to connect with the people of Williamsport, to hear what they like, what they want, and what they want to see change. We’re collecting stories from a group of people as diverse as our community, identifying what they value, and using this to develop vision statements to guide local decision making. Sign up for to learn more about this innovative initiative, and to receive updates and news. If you’re interested in volunteering, use our contact form  to reach us directly.

We work with the Orton Family Foundation, an organization that’s focused on building stronger, healthier, and more economically vibrant small cities and towns across America. The foundation helps small towns to develop a community development model that empowers residents to shape the future of their communities.
