In response to the special needs of homeless women with children, the Ministry of Caring established two emergency shelters, Mary Mother of Hope House II & III.

These cheerful, comfortable sites provide residents with a stable environment of support and guidance along with nourishing, well-balanced meals for 30 to 45 days.

In their journeys toward self-sufficiency, the women also have an opportunity to acquire skills in life management and parenting and also to use Ministry of Caring child care services.

Their children receive educational and recreational enrichment throughout their stays. 

Hope House II & III are key points of entry into the Ministry continuum of care for the homeless.

Case managers can easily connect women with services such as job training/placement assistance, medical and dental care and personal counseling.

    My grandparents have both passed leaving the family home with various house hold items from kitchen necessities to living room furniture. We are looking to donate these items to shelters to help families. This is what my grandmother would have wanted. My father wants to get the house emptied out to get it listed because this is very stressful for him.
