Storyteller comes to Transition House facilities

Transition House is delighted to  announce a new partnership with longtime local non-profit and early childhood education center, Storyteller Children’s Center, who recently assumed operations of Transition House’s licensed Infant Care Center.

Transition House has operated onsite, licensed infant care for families living in our shelter and housing since the early 1990s. We founded the center because in our work with homeless families, we realized a significant barrier to parents getting back to work was the lack of affordable childcare—specifically infant care for children ages six weeks to two years.

The terms of the merger give each agency the opportunity to offer its best resources. Transition House is contributing the use of its Infant Care Center facility free-of-charge to Storyteller. Storyteller, in turn, hired Transition House’s staff, absorbed the existing clientele, and assumed all operations of the Center.

They will continue to provide free or subsidized infant care to our families, and Transition House will offer free, onsite evening parenting classes for all Storyteller parents. These classes work to address gaps in skills, and offer resources to families that need extra support.
