Meet Your Candidates for Upper Providence Supervisors
Current Board of Supervisors
Helene Calci has called Upper Providence Township home since 2001 when her family bought a farmhouse that dates to 1766. Helene became increasingly involved in the township in 2013 when Montgomery County sold Parkhouse to Mid Atlantic Health Care. She was elected as a township supervisor in 2017, and served as Chairman of the township Board of Supervisors in 2020.
When Helene was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2017, her priority was to work hard to solve the diminishing volunteer fire model and stabilize our townships fire and EMS future. See fire tab here (Pat hyperlink to fire page). After several years on the job, Helene’s priorities have expanded to include trail connections, smart growth; acceptable traffic flow; financial strength and cost efficiency; enhanced emergency services; and advancing the township’s parks and recreation programs.
Helene graduated from Temple University with a BFA and is now a program manager for Publicis Sapient. Her experience working for a large global firm — working across multiple industries, time zones, and cultures — has honed her organizational and consensus building skills. Outside of work, Helene enjoys giving back to the community and has volunteered at St. Peter's Food Pantry and Saint Johns' soup kitchen in Norristown.
Helene with her husband, Joe, raised three children[JW1] in the Spring-Ford School district. She enjoys walking her dogs on the Parkhouse property and along the Schuylkill River, biking along the Perkiomen Trail and Schuylkill River Trail and kayaking on local waterways. She is honored to serve as a Township Supervisor and committed to maintaining and improving the quality of life for the residents of Upper Providence Township.
