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.
"We are a community-based nonprofit organization that provides a network of social, health and support services for the poor, including the homeless and working poor, in greater Wilmington. "
