GRADUATE FAMILIES WILL CONTINUE TO EXPERIENCE THE SAME QUALITY OF CARE, LOVE, AND SUPPORT, AS THEY DID IN THE STUDENT PROGRAM

Accountability has always played a big role at Mom's House. Our Graduate Program is designed to support and prepare families to thrive now that the parent has completed their education!

All graduate parents continue to receive 8 weeks of benefits after they graduate from the Mom's House [Student] Program this is called their "transition period". Graduates need to see one of the Directors about this if they have not discussed their transition period in their monthly one on ones prior to their graduation. Weeks 9-12 after graduation, the family enters into the Graduate Program; if the child of the graduate parent is preschool age, the graduate parent can choose to continue the Graduate Program benefits with Mom's House till their child can attend elementary school full-time.

The Mom's House Graduate Program benefits remain the same:

  • Quality childcare & early childhood education for their child(ren);
  • Access to the children's clothing boutique;
  • Access to the food pantry;
  • Referral services;
  • Workshops;
  • Resume/interview training;
  • Career planning;
  • Prayer;
  • Encouragement.

however, the payment terms for the benefits change. Graduates move from the Student Program's Full Contract Qualifying Scholarships to the Graduate Program's Partial Scholarship Tuition.

The Graduate Program is only offered to 'successful graduates' of the Mom's House Student Program. Successful graduates are defined as had completed their education goal/degree and maintained a consistent good standing with the Mom's House Student contract and have a preschool child enrolled in our program at the time of the parent's graduation.

Graduates can complete their service hour requirement for the month by:

  • Fundraising
  • Journaling
  • Mentoring
  • In-house cleaning
  • Attending in-house parent workshops

Graduates that do not qualify for childcare subsidy (i.e. "private pay") will receive a scholarship that reduces their child's tuition 75%. Mom's House refers to the Pennsylvania Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) aka Child Care Works (CCW), the childcare subsidy program for Pennsylvania, to determine the preschool-aged child's tuition.

2016 CCW Daily Preschool Tuition:

$34.50

Graduate Program Scholarship:

(26.00)

Daily Private Pay:

$8.50

Graduates that qualify for childcare subsidy (CCW) will be asked to pay what CCW issues the graduate's co-pay to be, which is based on their income. The CCW income levels are on a bell curve managed by the state of Pennsylvania. The average out of pocket to the parent is $5.00 per day.

Tuition will be accepted cash, check, online, credit card or money order. Tuition is due the Friday (end of business day) before the week of care. The 1 monthly service hour is due before the last weekday of the month. Returned check fees of $25.00 will be applied immediately.

Mom's House encourages graduates to budget accordingly and is consistent with payments, this skill not only helps with care payments but also other financial obligations, in the future. If a graduate needs additional support regarding budgeting, the graduate should reach out to Mom's House to set up one on one discussions.


A graduate's 1st time missing the Friday before the week of care payment, will have their care be suspended for the following two days or until their family's account is made current, then if the graduate misses a second payment in a semester, their care will be suspended for the following week (five days) or until their family's account is made current. If the graduate does not communicate with Mom's House during either suspension when they will make a payment on the open balance, the family will be dismissed from the program and the balance will be sent off the CCW offices if the family is receiving CCW. If the graduate cannot bring the open balance back to zero after two weeks, the family will be dismissed from the program and the balance will be sent off to the local collections after 4 weeks; the CCW offices will be notified of the dismissal and delinquent payment.


If a graduate continues to miss additional payments after their 1st missed payment has been paid, the family will be dismissed from the program the Monday after the second missed payment, and the balance will be sent off the CCW offices if the family is receiving CCW.

No multiple child discounts will be given.
