Poverty, Homelessness, Drug Addiction – we can be overwhelmed by the serious problems we see each day in our own community. We feel compelled to do something to solve these problems, but the question is, what can we really do? The board of the Mother Teresa Maternity Home invites you to join us in working on a solution, one day, one woman, one infant at a time.
For the past 19 years, the Mother Teresa Maternity Home has served over 330 pregnant homeless women, providing a safe, drug-free home for the duration of their pregnancy and for three months after the birth of their child. We house six women at a time, providing them with a program designed to improve their lives. The program includes prenatal care, parenting classes, drug and alcohol counseling and introduction to community services. We receive no money from the state or federal government and rely on fundraising activities and donations. Our biggest expense is salaries for our staff. The home is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with relief workers under the supervision of a home director.
We need your help – both moral and financial. We need a more regular income, funds that we can count on each month. We hope that you will see this as an opportunity for you to make an ongoing commitment to the Mother Teresa Maternity Home with a monthly monetary donation. In that way you will be helping to solve those overwhelming community problems – poverty, homelessness and drug addiction.
We would be happy to speak with you in person to explain our mission and to answer your questions. Please contact the Maternity Home at 530-295-8006 or send us an email HERE.
