Parent Program

Offering Empowerment

Mom’s House is a nonresidential center that empowers single mothers and fathers to complete their education and find meaningful and gainful employment. We believe that parents have the right to raise their children in conditions of dignity and financial independence.

Parents in program are of all ages and backgrounds who want to take responsibility for their children and their future.  Our program provides quality of childcare; parenting and life skills classes; tutoring; a food bank; a children’s clothing closet; a scholarship program; counseling; referral services; and the encouragement and support needed for parents to successfully complete their goals.

Over the past 26 years 80% of parents have sustained careers in their field of study, and 90% of parents from our program go to achieve postsecondary education. Parents in our program are from all across Lancaster County and are enrolled in area high schools, GED programs, colleges, universities, and other educational and job- training programs.
