Welcome to Mary’s Shelter!

Our mission is to provide a transitional, caring, educational, spiritual and supportive housing environment for pregnant women and their babies offering a pathway to self-sufficiency, and a life of dignity and respect.

Since opening in 2010, Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast has had over 100 women live at our shelter during their pregnancy, gaining valuable parenting, work and life skills during their stay. Some women stay for the duration of their pregnancy, while others stay for only a few months. All of the mothers assisted have left our shelter as stronger, more independent women.

This year—your on-line donations on May 3rd through the link listed in this event notification below "View Event Website" or copy and paste the following link into your browser: https://greatgiveflorida.org/npo/marys-shelter-of-the-treasure-coast from midnight to midnight will be used to help us build a new shelter to house homeless pregnant women and help them become self-sufficient so they may better care for their new baby and have a life of dignity and respect. The more money we raise on-line through this 24 hour giving period, the more money we receive in additional bonus dollars from the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The more people we have donate, the more bonus prizes we will receive. Please help us make a difference in the lives of Moms-to-be and their newborns and donate on May 3rd to Mary's Shelter. Share this message with all of your friends and family. Our goal this year is $10,000 to kick-off our Capital Campaign with the community to help us reach our Campaign goal of $900,000. Together we can break the cycle of poverty and empower women to reach their full potential as a parent and as an individual. Your contribution will help change a life and save lives!

Success Stories

Saving lives two at a time, in my case they saved three. I moved into Mary's Shelter in January 2013, where shortly after I discovered I was pregnant with twins. Now in a safe place and off the streets, I was able to focus on what I needed to do for the babies and myself. Mary Shelter was very supportive of all my decisions and helped me achieve the goals that I set to better myself. I chose to place the babies up for adoption and in the struggle the staff helped lift me up when I was down about my decision. While at Mary shelter I received my GED and gained lots of knowledge about everyday life situations. I also completed a case plan to regain custody of my 14 year old son. After finishing my time at Mary's Shelter I moved into my own place with my 14 year old son. I stay in contact with Mary Shelter and they are always willing to talk to me when things seem unbearable. I would recommend Mary's Shelter to any woman in a tight situation who needs help because they do really focus on saving lives two at a time. — Former Mary's Shelter Resident
