Welcome to Mary’s Shelter!

Our mission is to provide a transitional, caring, educational, spiritual and supportive housing environment for pregnant women and their babies offering a pathway to self-sufficiency, and a life of dignity and respect.

Since opening in 2010, Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast has helped more than 90 women and 36 healthy babies have been born. Some women stay for the duration of their pregnancy, while others stay for only a few months. All of the mothers assisted have left our shelter as stronger, more independent women.

I began working with Mary's Shelter 2 years ago, assisting with work-readiness skills and facilitating a breastfeeding support group. I was impressed with the dedication, motivation, and gratitude shown to me by both the staff and the residents. Mary's Shelter became very dear to me in a very short time. I continue to keep in contact with the young ladies I have met throughout my relationship with Mary's Shelter, and I will never forget the lessons they have taught me. I have seen homelessness, drug addiction, abuse, and a lack of education turn into a home and family, sobriety, safety, and the pursuit of success. Mary's Shelter fills a great need in our community; replacing desperation with hope and fear with faith. I am blessed to be a part of Mary's Shelter, and to be able to bear witness to the transformation of lives that occurs within its walls. — Jodi Hessing, Program Manager Workforce Solutions Youth Connections
