Mary’s Home is a faith-based transitional home that provides residential and non-residential services for homeless, pregnant women. Since opening in 2010, Mary’s Home of the Treasure Coast has helped hundreds of women and babies who have lived at the Home.
Many of the women who seek assistance from Mary's Home are in need of a supportive environment because they lack suitable housing or favorable family relationships. In addition to providing shelter, Mary's Home of the Treasure Coast prepares mothers for independent living and works with them to build a vision of hope for their future through financial, professional, and spiritual empowerment, education, and training. Throughout their time spent at the Home, during their pregnancies and after, all shelter residents work on their education, life skills training (including finance and budgeting), parenting skills, employment preparation courses, spiritual guidance, and counseling. Women attend all pre and post-natal health visits, and well-baby visits. The education and life skills learned at Mary's Home transition women to an independent lifestyle with their children.
All homeless, pregnant women are welcome regardless of race, religion, or nationality. Mary's Home helps women break the cycles of poverty and dependence for herself, her baby, and for the generations that follow. All of the mothers assisted have left the Home as stronger, more independent woman enabling them to be a better parent for their new baby.
