The Maternity Shelter Program
The Maternity Shelter Program (MSP) provides safe, secure and supportive housing with intensive case management services for pregnant and parenting young women who are between 18 and 24 years old, and their dependent children. MSP assists these young women who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, develop the skills necessary to live independently while providing a safe and stable home for themselves and their children. MSP’s
Founded in 2009, as part of a pilot program funded by The United Way, this unique program was created as a response to the growing demand for housing for young mothers who were homeless.
Although called a shelter, this program does not provide emergency housing. Instead we take a comprehensive approach toward bolstering these mother’s parenting and self sufficiency skills so they can parent safely and independently after living in our program for 18-24 months.
Our monthly orientation process is held on the first Tuesday of every month and provides an overview of what the program has to offer and also of what is asked of the young women who participate. Prospective program residents as well as service providers who would like to refer are encouraged to attend.
