Mothers & Children Housing Ministry

Mothers & Children Housing Ministry is a transitional housing program for mothers with preadolescent children who have become or are in eminent danger of being homeless.

Safety … responsibility … accountability … progress are all program priorities.

An increasing number of single mothers are facing homelessness today!

This ministry provides a mother:

  • A safe place for her children
  • A caring environment to grow in
  • An opportunity to regain stability
  • Resources to become independent
  • And most importantly ... Hope for the Future
