Impact & Results

The goal of Mary’s Shelter is to provide all struggling mothers with support and guidance so they can become self-sufficient and make good choices for themselves and their children. Although Mary’s Shelter may be perceived as serving only Treasure Coast residents, women from other counties and even other states have sought residence at Mary’s Shelter in Stuart, Florida.

Residents of Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast have achieved tangible successes since the shelter opened in 2010.  Women have worked hard to receive their GEDs and certifications in a variety of programs including Certified Nursing Assistant and Child Development Assistant. Others have chosen to pursue internships, study for programs through Indian River State College and gain skills to become gainfully employed through training provided by Workforce Solutions.
