Mary's Shelter is a faith-based, independent 501(c) (3) organization that relies on support from individuals and organizations throughout the community. Donations are used in many ways at Mary's Shelter. Some donations assist us with paying our monthly bills while other funds are used to help young mother pursue educational or career focused goals. Even the smallest donations can play a big part in helping us save two lives at one time.
