Just Harvest is a membership organization that mobilizes the citizens of our community to work for the elimination of hunger and poverty. In partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare Just Harvest helps its low-income clients obtain food stamps. Each applicant is assisted in overcoming common hurdles in the application process.  Just Harvest is boosting the paychecks of low-income workers by providing free tax preparation assistance. In 2010, Just Harvest's tax assistance volunteers helped over 2,200 people file their taxes, getting them almost $4.5 million in refunds. Working with local officials, farmers, and neighborhood groups Just Harvest has expanded the reach of farmers' markets into low-income neighborhoods and worked to allow produce to be purchased through government benefits such as WIC. Just Harvest advocates for better more compassionate administration of welfare programs and legislative action to aid the poor.

Mike Stout
Mike Stout is a socially conscious singer song-writer and community leader. He leads crusades against local and global economic injustice, rallying people with his music to take action. His sound and lyrics are influenced by his musical heroes Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Jackson Browne and Bruce Cockburn.  John Hayes of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette wrote of Mike "In the Woody Guthrie tradition, his songs reflect contemporary issues without resorting to journalism. They're more like partisan op-ed columns that grab political opponents by the throat and don't let go." Mike tells his stories from the heart about people who are affected by unemployment, social injustice, environmental hazard, or war.
The NewLanders
The NewLanders have researched and rediscovered songs that capture the American experience.  By interweaving traditional instruments, including the Appalachian lap dulcimer, fiddle, and mandolin, with richly layered harmonies and electric guitar and bass, the NewLanders have created a contemporary sound, while honoring and preserving the inspiring stories of the past.  A NewLanders' performance includes engaging narrations and real-life accounts from the mills, mines, rivers, and fields of their home region, western Pennsylvania, as well as haunting songs and poignant stories that celebrate the enduring spirit that built our nation. "Your songs provide powerful images of our nation's heritage and raise the spirit of Pennsylvania's rich past." Mr. John M. Perzel, The Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
