Funds will help with daycare costs and unexpected emergencies

Working families are not always able to receive financial support when unexpected emergencies occur. In response, H.O.M.E., an Orland-based shelter and multi-faceted nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness and improving low-income families’ quality of life, recently developed a new subsidy program for working families in need.

“The new program is designed to assist parents with daycare costs when no other assistance is available,” said Tracy Hair, executive director of H.O.M.E. “The subsidy will also help low income families who experience financial difficulty, but do not meet the state’s eligibility guidelines for support programs.”

H.O.M.E has exceeded its $8,000 fundraising goal for the program, with meaningful contribution from H.M. Payson, The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Castine (UUCC Opportunity Fund), and other community members.
