Founded in 1983 in Johnstown, PA, by a group of Citizens Concerned for Human Life, Mom’s House® offers single parents, facing an unplanned pregnancy, with a viable, practical alternative to the despair of abortion and the tragedy of welfare. Mom's House® is nondenominational faith based, nonprofit, licensed childcare centers. Infant, Toddler and Pre-school children receive quality care and early education. Their single parents are plugged into a network of supportive services that enable them to complete their education, find jobs and get off of welfare. Since 1983, Mom’s House® has evolved into a national organization and established a headquarters in Johnstown. There are now nine Mom’s Houses® in four states. Those young moms who entered the program are now teachers and accountants, nurses and insurance adjusters, medical technicians and engineers and physical therapists. Many of them are married and have had other children. They prove that Mom’s House® offers hope-filled solutions to single parents faced with the challenge of an unplanned pregnancy. Mom’s House Lancaster was established in 1991 and recognized as a 501(c)3 in 1992. Since Lancaster’s inception enrollment has gradually increased throughout the years. On average, 15 low-income at-risk single mothers and 18 children are enrolled at Mom’s House. Since 1991, 228 graduations have been celebrated, with over 285 single parents assisted. The Lancaster community saves untold dollars in taxpayer’s money annually due to the removal of these graduates from the welfare system, now they are taxpayers as well. We believe that mothers have the right to raise their children in conditions of dignity and financial independence. The choice for life does not mean a choice for poverty or welfare. Mom’s House Lancaster serves single parents of all ages and backgrounds who want to take responsibility for their children and their future. Our nonresidential program that works with the whole family by providing the following: the highest Pennsylvania commemorated quality of childcare to children (ages 6 weeks to 6 years), parenting and life skills classes, tutoring, a food bank, a clothing closet, a scholarship program, counseling, referral services, and the encouragement and support needed for parents to successfully complete their goals. Mom’s House has a patented Hand Up Program rather than “hand-out”. Each single parent signs a contract agreeing to maintain passing grades, to attend school regularly, to participate in weekly part and life skills classes, and give back to Mom’s House with two hours of service each week. All services provided by Mom’s House are free of charge. Students from Lancaster County are enrolled in area high schools, GED programs, Millersville University, HACC, Lancaster Career and Technology, Stevens College of Technology, LGH Nursing School, Consolidated School of Business, Lancaster School of Cosmetology, and other educational and job- training programs. Mom’s House is blessed with volunteers serve as board members, childcare helpers, parenting class instructors, bulk-mail assemblers, holiday helpers, maintenance workers, office assistants, and church-outreach liaisons. Volunteers also serve on fundraising committees. With our unique program everyone can volunteer and make an impact in our families lives. Mom’s House is proud to collaborate with other nonprofits to make a collective impact that creates long term sustainable change for the mothers and their children. Mom’s House has houses in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Delaware. With our graduates we have celebrated, we have removed thousands of recipients from the welfare rolls and saving communities millions in taxes annually.

Mission: Mom’s House strives to break the cycle of poverty and welfare. It is our mission to guide at-risk single parents through the process of achieving educational goals and provide tools and resources needed to become effective parents, professionals and community members.

March came in like a lion but that won’t stop the incredible team at Moser Roofing Solutions, LLC from starting Mom’s House’s biggest renovation since opening in 1991! Moser Roofing was shoveling our roof today to prep for ripping it off Monday and installing a brand new one!

A huge thank you to the S Dale High Family Foundation and the Clark Family Foundation for funding this much needed project!
