Dear Friends,


For 25 years, St. Mary’s Center for Women and Children has stood up for single moms and their children who are without homes. We stand up for teens in need of mentoring and education. We stand for children who have been removed from their home due to trauma, abuse, and neglect and provide them with a safe place to heal and recover. Everyone deserves a home, an education, nurturing care, an opportunity for a brighter future.


To expand our reach beyond our current clients to partners across the city and to families throughout the community who desperately need our help St. Mary’s Center is planning The Community Resource Center. Our goal is to stabilize families before they become homeless and to support those who are homeless or recently homeless with high-quality, caring services with our proven success at ending the cycle of homelessness, one family at a time.


We have launched The Center Campaign to fund our Community Resource services and to create a new building on our site – offering meeting spaces, training facilities and offices to meet the increased demand for St. Mary’s Center expertise and services. Through the Center Campaign, we also are building a Recreation Room so that the hundreds of children who each year call St. Mary’s Center home, have a place to run, play, make friends, and to experience the everyday joys of childhood. We encourage you to join our efforts.


In October, our friends at Amazon  announced a match gift offer of $1 million to St. Mary’s Center so we can prevent family homelessness. And you can help! You can double your gift by making a gift  to St. Mary’s Center and The Center Campaign.

Together we can end homelessness.

With gratitude,

Deirdre Houtmeyers
President and CEO
