Part of our mission is to give back to the community. We recognize that our effort will have a force multiplier effect when we leverage local non-profit organizations and for profit businesses. Hence, we created The Gables Community Partnership Program.

Barrio Alegria is a community engagement organization that utilizes the arts to create transformations in individuals to help them transform their communities.
This means that we utilize the arts to build, empower, and strengthen communities through individuals. We dance, we act, and we paint, but most importantly we care about the stories of those that are helping create safe spaces for vulnerable community members.
Weaved into our programs are storytelling systems that measure our results.

Located on Upland Avenue, Reading, PA we provide a beautiful setting for women who are looking to make changes for a lifetime. We offer each family a private suite, including their own bedrooms and a bath. Our large, open-concept gathering area has a living room and dining area, where families congregate for weeknight family dining, and opportunities for week-night programming for adults. This concept of living in community helps families build relationships and trust among one another, find friendships and share resources.
Our professional staff, interact continually with our clients, guiding them through our comprehensive programming. We look at each family holistically and work personally with both moms and children. Each family is treated with respect and love, while expectations are high, we understand each family comes to us from differing backgrounds, levels of education, and family dynamics.
What makes Life Church so unique? We like to think it’s our team approach to ministry. At Life Church we believe that everyone is unique, endowed with gifts, talents and abilities to be shared with others. By doing so, we not only meet the varied needs of those “within” the church, but “outside” the church as well. It’s true: Together Everyone Accomplishes More!
ReadingFilmFEST was created by filmmakers for filmmakers and film lovers. We understand the importance of festivals in creating opportunities for filmmakers to meet their audiences, network with other professionals and promote their films. By supporting filmmakers, we’ve learned that our audience benefits by being able to engage in truly meaningful dialogue with the creators of film.
ReadingFilmFEST welcomes filmmakers from the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world! Last year’s visiting filmmakers gave us rave reviews for film quality, hospitality and locations! Whether or not you have a film to our festival, we encourage you to hang out in Reading and see what all the fuss is about!
