Mother Teresa Home Donations

"LOVE begins at HOME and it is not how much we do but how much love we put in that action" - Mother Teresa

Purpose

The program supports homeless pregnant and/or parenting young people between the ages of 16 and 26, and occasionally their dependent children. (Based on application and need). Services are provided for up to 18 months. The program offers an intensive array of services to meet the short- and longer-term needs of pregnant and parenting women. Program goals are to teach young people parenting skills as well as child development, family budgeting, education, health and nutrition,and other skills to promote their long-term economic independence and ensure the wellbeing of their children. In addition, the program will focus on giving young people the chance to exercise leadership, build skills, and become involved in their communities.

History

Thousands of young women run away from their homes, are asked to leave their homes, or become homeless in the United States each year. Many of these young people are pregnant or have already become parents. Pregnant and parenting women not only need basic necessities like food and shelter, they must also learn to be effective parents. We have a significant challenge in the Western New York area as to appropriate/available places for these women in this particular group to turn to.

Collections will be accepted the 3rd Sunday of every month,  11:00 am - 1:00 pm in Room 110.

We kindly suggest a minimum of 5 requested donations per family if possible. Please label donations "Mother Teresa Home Donations".
