Guadalupe Home is a transitional shelter for pregnant and parenting mothers and their babies who find themselves homeless. Rather than provide emergency shelter for a night or two, we offer a safe, long-term, no-cost home for pregnant and parenting mothers of children under the age of three who are interested in making a change for a hopeful future.
Mothers and babies receive free room and board with the condition that they attend school or work full time to save money for the next step in their journey. While living in the care of Catholic Charities, mothers are responsible for their future, their room, and their children by goal setting, house responsibilities, and more.
Our goal is to provide basic needs while a mother works toward self-sufficiency by getting an education, finding a job, and saving money for the next step in her journey.
Support services are provided to nurture families and promote self-sufficiency.
• Parenting education – Mothers learn about happy and healthy mother-baby relationships as educators teach the importance of developmental milestones, parenting tips and techniques, structure routine, positive discipline, and setting limits.
• Financial Literacy – Staff and volunteers host classes and provide guidance to mothers to pay debt and save for a secure future.
• Job Readiness – Computer resources and guidance is available for mothers to make informed decisions about employment to meet their financial goals.
• Counseling – Qualified counselors are available to help mothers heal and break the cycle of abuse and neglect.
Applicants interested for consideration should contact Guadalupe Home at (210) 476-0707.
