Our comprehensive approach to family support, providing residential housing, life-skills training, parenting training, and counseling services that empower women to be socially, emotionally and economically self-sufficient. We improve lives and help to advance future generations through a structured living environment and parental development. Our services also include educational support, training and therapeutic services.
Mary and Elizabeth’s House will aim to work at transforming the lives of single women and their families. The women we serve are young mothers, single mothers, pregnant women and those who have or are currently experiencing trauma, family disruptions, instability and a host of other challenges that have substantially impacted their lives.
Our structured residential program, educational supports, mental health counseling, and spiritual guidance will help to stabilize women and their children who may be impacted by trauma, neglect, abuse and the lack of extended family and community connections.
TO STRENGTHEN FAMILIES
Mary and Elizabeth’s House programs provide parenting and life-skills training, individualized counseling and an early childhood development support program. Together these vital programs support and strengthen the bond of a mother and her child.
TO IMPACT LIVES
The life outcomes for young women, especially pregnant or single mothers are often bleak. Research shows they are less likely to continue on a solid path in life. Most don’t graduate from high school, have difficulty finding employment and inevitably find themselves homeless. We are committed to reversing the trends caused by youthful indiscretions. We will also empower and strengthen young women.
