Allegany Hope also makes over 20,000 videos and educational slide presentation available without charge through its online community subscription with RightNow Media @Work, as part of our Building Healthy Communities Through Healthy Families focus.

Selections include educational cartoons for kids, and topics for teens, parenting, marriage and families, health and wellness, overcoming life struggles, men’s and women’s studies, finances, business owner and employee titles, and more.

Individuals can access the videos, with more being added regularly, by sending a message to with Video Subscribe in the Subject line and including one’s name, community of residence, email address and telephone number.

An email invitation will be issued by RightNow Media @Work which simply has to be replied to through an acceptance link for instant access to the complete library.
