St. Mary’s Center has been a haven for homeless women, children, and families for 26 years. Perched atop Jones Hill in Dorchester on the former site of St. Margaret’s Hospital, it has been a healing environment for the abused and traumatized; a place of growth and sustainability; a beacon and resource for the greater community.

The COVID-19 pandemic now threatens our ability to continue providing our core services to those that need them the most. It has impacted our staff and families, many of them living on the edge with literally nowhere else to go. The risks to sustaining our mission have never been higher; the need never more critical.

Thank you to those who have so generously given. We are almost halfway to our goal! Please donate to support our important work at St. Mary’s Center. Encourage your family and friends to do the same.

Thank you!
