"We must realize the truth of ourselves. . .We are one human family. One part of the other.  My old workhorse Teddy and the fancy registered horse visiting us had no trouble eating out of the same dish.  We must discover the same."  -Lucy Poulin

CHILD CARE

We serve children ages six weeks to twelve years of age in our daycare center, and we

are able to have up to twelve children per day. We also offer after school and vacation

care for children aged six to twelve. Children will be admitted without regard to race,

culture, sex, religion, orientation, ancestry, or disability when a slot is available. The

program will attempt to accommodate a child with special needs consistent with the

requirements of the ADA. Developmentally appropriate practices help guide our

curriculum which emphasizes on creativity, choice, growing, independence, cooperation,

and building friendships.

HOUSING

Permanent Housing

 

HOME has built 54 homes for low-income families since the 1970’s. HOME supports low-income families to own their homes. The process can be long and hard for families however we are always optimistic that walls can be broken down and pathways can be created. HOME recognizes that for the program to make the biggest impact, each party must make a concerted effort to reach their goals. Families feel the most connected and take the most responsibility when they take an active part in purchasing and sometimes renovating or building the house they hope to call home. Our housing department incorporates these aspects into the program through connecting prospective families with first time home buyer courses and planning ahead for future builds with families in mind before construction begins.
