Mary's Shelter Gulf Coast (MSGC) was incorporated in 2001 to address the needs of women experiencing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. The main area we serve covers the counties of Mobile, Baldwin, and Escambia in Alabama, and Santa Rosa and Escambia counties in the state of Florida. MSGC is the only charitable organization in this five-county area able to offer shelter and support to homeless, pregnant adult women, before and after the birth of their child.
Our residence is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During the workday, our Executive Director oversees all aspects of operating the home. She is assisted by a Program Manager, who helps our residents set goals for their future, and meets with each resident on a regular basis to review their progress. A resident adviser is always on the premises. Many volunteers help with all aspects of the program, from rocking babies to preparing mailings and performing upkeep on our facility.
