Madonna House was originally formed as a maternity home for expectant mothers who were homeless, but has since evolved to include homeless mothers with children as well. Concern over rising birth rates, low birth weights, limited access to health services and an increase in infants with failure to thrive prompted the creation of Madonna House.
Every family residing at Madonna House is experiencing some type of crisis, whether it is unplanned pregnancy, job loss, separation from a spouse, or an eviction from their place of residence. Our goal is first to provide for the family's basic needs, and second to give them the tools they need to make the necessary changes in their life. We strive for each family to develop and strengthen family bonds, become self-sufficient, and to leave our home to go to a safe, stable, independent housing environment. Madonna House has been able to identify and respond to issues related to pregnancy, prenatal care and childbirth, as well as threats of families being separated due to homelessness that may not otherwise be addressed.
While at Madonna House, mothers are given an opportunity to work on their problems with less pressure, decreasing the strain on the family and reducing the threat of having their children removed while in the shelter. Mothers who have stayed, or are staying at Madonna House, experience improved parenting skills, life skills and overall mental health as evidenced by our residents securing independent housing, higher levels of education, and stable employment. Families are able to address future stressors with a renewed confidence due to the skills they have learned while at Madonna House.
