THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE BOX collection for August will be an outreach of the Women of the ELCA’s Building Blocks of Hope to benefit Mom’s House, Lancaster, which provides safe, secure, and totally free childcare to low-income single parents wishing to continue their education. 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 Houses® are God-centered, nonprofit, licensed childcare centers. 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.
