As a privatized 501(c)3 organization, Our Mother’s Home raises 50 – 60% of its own funding, to provide teen moms a supporting environment to stay with their children, learn life skills, and finish their education. We depend heavily on our dedicated volunteers, contributions of funds, commodities and services. Our success rate has generated great interest among those interested in decreasing the rate of children in foster care.
Our Mother’s Home provides a safe and nurturing environment for young moms (ages 11-21) in foster care and their babies. Prior to the launch of Our Mother’s Home in 2000, teenage mothers in foster care were often separated from their child at birth. This unique home is the only one of it’s kind in Southwest Florida to provide service to break the cycle one teen at a time.
The Vision of Our Mother’s Home is to support a world of independent women who believe in themselves to accomplish their dreams.
The Mission of Our Mother’s Home is to empower young women by breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
