Our Mother's House is a non-profit, non-denominational residential
housing program offered by Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc.
Our Mission is to provide single mothers and their child(ren) a
safe and secure environment in which to achieve
self-sufficiency through education, vocational training and
personal growth. Priority is given to mothers who are currently
homeless or in another shelter. Applications are accepted
without regard to race, ethnicity or religion.
Applicants are admitted as residents dependent upon available space and
the appropriateness of our services to meet the applicant's needs.
Residents have their own apartments and have access to on-site laundry
facilities. A case management team is on duty during the day to provide
guidance and assistance to mothers who have chosen to accept the
responsibility of raising their child on their own.
Children's First runs an Early Head Start program on-site at Our Mother's
House. These teachers, in addition to our volunteers, ensure that the
children are cared for while their mothers are at school or work. Because
of this program, the children gain the skills and abilities they need to
enter the public school system.
