Mary’s Mantle is a Catholic residential program for homeless expectant women. We witness the love of Christ by promoting the dignity of life. We provide a safe, faith-based, and caring environment that supports the transition into motherhood, including extended aftercare for continued personal growth and integration into the community. We focus on the spiritual, emotional, physical, educational, and vocational well-being of mother and child.
Our relationships here often help us grow closer to eternity…
Our past resident Kara was Baptized into the body of Christ this Easter. Her relationships at Mary’s Mantle helped her discover the great love God has for her.
Who has touched your life deeply? You can honor someone who has helped you grow closer to Christ by supporting a mom in need at Mary’s Mantle.
In August, a Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament will be said for the persons who are honored in this way. (We will update this page with the date and time as soon as we can.)
