Community Outreach

We believe in giving back to our community at The Highlands at Wyomissing.

Many of our residents have a passion for giving back. While some use their craft to create items for donation, others volunteer their time with their favorite organizations or by giving a gift of music or companionship. This example of servitude continues through their retirement. In fact, our residents often find that they have more time to give back to others and make a difference in their church, their civic club, or within the greater community.

We welcome you to see the many ways in which our residents are continuing their impact near and far.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our residents are encouraged to either continue their work with their own favorite non-profit organization or to join others in a variety of philanthropic opportunities to not only better our greater community and world, but to also receive the blessing that only giving back can offer. Some of those organizations we love helping are:

  • ​United Way
  • Ready.Set.READ!
  • Creative Stitchers
  • New Journey Community Outreach

Many of our residents use their passion and talent and work as partners with numerous wonderful non-profits.

A local elementary school student struggles with pronouncing her words when reading. Another has issues with comprehension. Others have processing and attention problems. But on Wednesday afternoons, these area children are getting the personalized attention they need when residents from The Highlands volunteer for private reading sessions.
