Pennsbury Community Resources

COVID19 - 2020

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

We realize this is a difficult time for many in our community and supporting our Pennsbury families is a priority. Below is a list of essential resources in Lower Bucks with their current operating statuses for Bucks County residents.


If you are unsure of where to start, call 211. All you need to do is dial 211 from your phone OR text your zip code to 898211, or visit uwp.org/211gethelp. A caring resource specialist is there to assist you 24/7, 365, free of charge.



If you need any additional support and/or resources, please let us know. We are in this together!


Should you need to reach out to the Pennsbury social worker assigned to your child's school, please see the directory at the end of this letter.
