History

Paxton Ministries was founded in 1981 by a group of local Christians who were burdened for the homeless and needy in Harrisburg. In a bold move of faith, they purchased what is now Paxton Street Home (formerly Messiah Home), and at the dedication of the building the following statement was read:

"This facility will provide a home for the disadvantaged, love for the lonely, and meaningful activity for empty lives. [...] Here hope will be restored."

Throughout our history, Paxton Ministries has been committed to this vision. We have witnessed our ministry grow in services, staff, residents, and housing options, so that we now offer a home to a total of just over 100 people as well as employment opportunities through our janitorial business, Paxton Cleaning Solutions.
