Providing Help. Creating Hope. Serving All.
Our Mother’s House of Catholic Charities Diocese of Venice, Inc. has provided transitional housing to homeless mothers and their children since 1987. The program’s mission is to offer single mothers and their preschool-age children a safe and secure environment to achieve increased self-sufficiency through education, vocational training, and personal growth.
Our Mother’s House provides shelter and guidance for single mothers and their children who would otherwise be homeless. Children attend Early Head Start while mothers are in school or working. Mothers work toward self-sufficiency and work closely with case managers to reach their established goals. They also attend weekly life skills classes, such as parenting, self-esteem, nutrition, and financial literacy. In addition, mothers agree to follow house rules and regulations, follow their care plan, attend house meetings, and accept communal responsibilities.
Our Mother’s House and Children First of Sarasota County partner to provide a Early Head Start program for the resident children. The licensed and certified program ensures the children are ready to enter the public school system. Children also receive daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks while in school.
- Single mothers 18 years old or older

- Drug and alcohol-free and agree to follow program guidelines and participate in an individual plan
