Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County aims to break down barriers to families’ housing stability and financial stability. One of the biggest challenges that our families face is quality, affordable childcare!

Currently, Habitat Montco is running an 8-week financial literacy program called Almost Home, focused on helping families take control of their finances. Classes are Tuesday and Thursday nights now through May 19th from 6pm to 8:30pm at the OIC in Norristown (1101 Arch St.).

Habitat is currently working with 13 families and 25 children. While parents are in class learning about budgeting, credit, employment opportunities, legacy planning, legal issues, and housing options, the children need attentive, creative individuals to provide quality childcare. If you have a passion for working with kids and are looking for a way to give back, this is a great opportunity!

If you or anyone you know is willing to volunteer to provide childcare, please reach out to Michelle Spada, Director of Family Services, at mspada@habitatmontco.org or 610-278-7710 ext. 109. Individuals with experience working with special needs children are highly preferred. Volunteers are needed starting immediately on Tuesday, April 12th. Habitat Montco has an URGENT need for these childcare volunteers. 

The Almost Home financial literacy program has an incredible impact on families’ housing and financial stability. Come out and support our families’ commitment and hard work by providing quality childcare for their children for this session and our upcoming sessions in the summer and fall. This program is not possible without your support!
