Rochester Borough has been designated a Heart and Soul Community by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council. The Heart and Soul program is a four-phase, step-by-step process developed by the Orton Family Foundation.

The Heart and Soul program focuses on the power of story-telling, reflection, and relationships. The project is based on forming connections with residents and including them in the community decision-making process. Because these efforts are organized and carried out by the people who live, work and invest in the community, it leads to actions that bring about positive change. The program’s outcomes include building neighbor-to-neighbor relationships, building a sense of pride in the community, encouraging investment in the community, and building support mechanisms to help those in need.

We are looking for residents and community partners to participate in upcoming community discussions. There will be opportunities for deep or limited involvement based on your schedule and preferences. Your voice, the heart and soul of our community, will be vital to develop positive, resident-driven change in Rochester.

If you, your business, or organization is interested in collaborating with the Rochester Heart and Soul Team, please contact us at You may also visit our website at, find us on Facebook, or call the Rochester Borough office at (724) 775-1200.
