Mary’s Mantle is a Catholic residential program for homeless expectant women. We witness the love of Christ by promoting the dignity of life. We provide a safe, faith-based, and caring environment that supports the transition into motherhood, including extended aftercare for continued personal growth and integration into the community. We focus on the spiritual, emotional, physical, educational, and vocational well-being of mother and child.
Housing is provided for up to four expectant mothers at a time who are at least eighteen years old with no other children in their care, regardless of their religious affiliation. The house is staffed 24 hours a day with a live-in housemother, a case manager, and other part-time staff.
Our expectant mothers experience and witness love and healthy relationships while in residence at Mary’s Mantle. Our staff and volunteers work to help the women understand their responsibilities as mothers and plan for their futures. We help to connect them to community resources and help them find local churches that will welcome them into their faith communities. No matter what the work, it is all done in the name of Jesus Christ under the protective mantle of our Blessed Mother.
