Changing Lives Forever

 
Mary's Shelter of Reading, PA, was created to address the needs of women experiencing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. We have become a multifaceted comprehensive housing and social service agency that addresses pregnancy, parenting and youth homelessness through proactive preventative work, crisis intervention services and stabilization back into the community.

Mary's Shelter is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. The facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During the work day, our Executive Director oversees all aspects of operating the home. She is assisted by a Program Manager, who helps our residents set goals for their future, and meets with each resident on a regular basis to review their progress. Also, many volunteers help with all aspects of the program, from rocking babies, to preparing mailings and performing upkeep on our facility.
