The Mission

St. Mary’s Center, a multi-service organization supporting women and families, believes shelter is not enough to erase the devastation of cyclical poverty and homelessness. Grounded in social justice, we empower families to achieve emotional stability and economic independence through education, workforce development, and permanent housing.
