The Seal of HOPE in Lancaster, Inc. is two circles surrounding a flaming urn which is supported by two hands. The flames coming from the urn are the flames of a new beginning, the help that HOPE offers those in urgent need. The hands supporting the urn represent those who have given to HOPE--given time, money, food, prayers, and concern. Those hands represent each person who supports HOPE and makes its work possible. By placing these helping, uplifting hands within two circles, the seal shows the continuity of HOPE's task. Just as a circle does not end, so HOPE's commitment to the needs of Lancaster County will continue for as long as the community's hands lift up these life-giving flames that offer help to those in need.
