Ssonko lead each of these churches in realizing significant transformation. At Monumental AME Church, she led them  in a major capital campaign, The Way Forward, to rebuild the spiritual and physical infrastructure of the oldest African American congregation in the Borough of Steelton, PA.  Under her leadership the church grew its congregation by 250% and returned to worship in its historic building. The church was able to rehabilitate major mechanical systems of the church as well as create a vibrant, on-line presence during the pandemic.

She worked with various community partners and the Borough of Steelton to organize the first community garden in Steelton, PA, addressing the issue of Steelton being a food desert.
