Our Mother's House/Catholic Charities
Our Mother’s House of Catholic Charities Diocese of Venice, Inc. has provided transitional housing to homeless mothers and their children since 1987. The program’s mission is to offer single mothers and their preschool-age children a safe and secure environment to achieve increased self-sufficiency through education, vocational training, and personal growth.
Our Mother’s House provides shelter and guidance for single mothers and their children who would otherwise be homeless. Children attend Early Head Start, located on-site, while mothers are in school or working. Mothers work toward self-sufficiency and must attend life skills classes, such as parenting, self-esteem, nutrition, and financial literacy. Mothers agree to follow house rules and regulations, attend house meetings, and accept communal responsibilities.
