Life Skills

Each resident learns how to plan and prepare her own meals, maintain a home, and care for her newborn. She develops the necessary skills to succeed independently.

Mary's Shelter volunteers assist residents in navigating the local housing market and securing future housing.

Each Mary's Shelter resident receives support and encouragement as she completes her GED and earns college credit.
Here's a word from a graduated resident.
