In addition to providing shelter for pregnant, homeless women, Mary's Shelter of the Treasure Coast prepares our mothers for independent living for themselves and their baby. We also work with them to break the cycle of poverty and build a vision of hope for their future through empowerment, education and training.
Since our beginning in 2010, Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast has helped hundreds of women and babies. Through their pregnancies all shelter residents work on their education, life skills training including finance and budgeting, parenting skills, employment prep courses, spiritual guidance and counseling. Women attend all pre and post-natal health visits, as well as well-baby visits. The education and life skills learned at Mary's Shelter prepares women to live independently.
