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.

Success Stories

Mary's Shelter has offered me many opportunities to help get me back on my feet, provided me with support, and made me feel very at home. If you asked me a few months ago if I had any idea what the future would hold, I would have probably looked at you with a blank stare. I am so thankful to everyone at Mary's Shelter for their support. With the structure, resources, and opportunities offered at Mary's Shelter you can really change your life for the better as long as you put in the work, keep a positive attitude, and stay motivated! — Former Mary's Shelter Resident
