Gemma’s Faith in Action Council provides invaluable connections with many church and other faith-based supporters by engaging congregations of various faiths as advocates for the children, youth, families, and all individuals who participate in Gemma’s programs. The Council meets several times each year to learn about projects that their congregations can support and to stay updated about our work.
Faithful partners have long supported the work of the two organizations that merged to form Gemma Services in 2019: theVillage and Silver Springs – Martin Luther School. Congregations have supported theVillage since its founding in 1877 as Presbyterian Orphanage in Southwest Philadelphia, and similarly have worked to advance the mission of Silver Springs since its founding in 1859 as the Germantown Orphans Home.
The Faith in Action Council invites those of any faith to participate and join Gemma in accompanying those in our communities as they face life’s challenges.
