Homeword recognizes the value of our classes and the sometimes difficult choices families face when deciding how to pay for childcare in order to attend them. To help meet the needs of our participants across Montana, we offer direct payments to parents to help cover the cost of childcare during class. Reimbursement is available on a first-come, first-served basis while funds are available. Please complete the Childcare Reimbursement Application or call 406-532-4663 x10 if you have any questions.
MATCHED SAVINGS PROGRAM
We’ve partnered with NeighborWorks Montana to offer a Matched Savings program. This is a powerful tool for you to use to build a habit and practice of saving. This program also offers you quality financial education and counseling with a network of certified housing counselors, empowering you with the tools you need to have healthy finances and be prepared for unexpected expenses.
Along with our own certified educators, professionals in the community volunteer their time, providing instruction in their fields of expertise with our class participants. Over 50 volunteers donate nearly 100 hours of their time every year as guest presenters in our classes. Participants learn first-hand about available local resources, and presenters have the opportunity to meet potential customers. Volunteer to be a guest presenter »
