We are now accepting applications for residents to join us in August 2012! Please contact us if you would like more information on becoming a resident of the Norristown Community House as a post high school gap year student, college student, or recent college graduate. Qualified applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis until all spaces are filled.
Upon acceptance, community members have one month to finalize their commitment to the Norristown Community House with a $200 deposit.
Upon arrival in Norristown, each participant is responsible to pay $450 per month for the length of their participation in the program.
Participants are also expected to invite others to support the Norristown Community House as they learn and serve in Norristown. Involving friends and family in your experience is not simply about getting money. It gives others the opportunity to impact an urban neighborhood while investing in your future and deepening their relationship with you. It gives you the opportunity to put your faith in God's provision.
During the first month at the Norristown Community House, participants will sit down together to send letters to their friends, family, and churches inviting them to join the mission of the Norristown Community House. The goal is that the community would work together to raise a total of $1350 per participant each year.
Individual payments and donations cover all program costs for members of the Norristown Community House: furnished housing with all utilities, household supplies, participation in the retreats, service in Norristown, and special events. Food and other personal purchases are the responsibility of each individual.
If you have questions or concerns about finances, please contact us. Do not allow finances to prevent you from pursuing this opportunity. Scholarships may be available for participants demonstrating financial need.
