When women enter our shelter, they are truly in crisis mode.
Often, women stay with their abusers because the only other choice is homelessness. Mary & Martha’s three shelters provide a safe haven for victims to escape abuse and begin recovery. Our shelters are designed to be just like home, with each family having their own space.
Much like the wise Mary from the Bible, we know that it’s not just busy work that achieves results – it is the “good part.” Mary & Martha House provides individualized case management, which is the key to giving clients what they need to succeed. Spending time with each other, building relationships, and trust enables us to mend hearts, grow minds, and build spirit.
At Mary & Martha we take every opportunity to celebrate success – even the smallest ones.
Our clients learn how to build their confidence. This sense of achievement gives them the determination they need to keep working so they can achieve ultimate success: acquiring job skills, finding employment, and moving on to permanent housing.
Mary & Martha House provides emergency and transitional housing and support services to homeless women, victims of domestic violence and their dependent children so that they will gain employment and successfully secure permanent housing.
