MOMMAS HOUSE provides housing and support services to young mothers and their babies. At MOMMAS House we seek to give the mother the opportunity to continue her education or vocational experience interrupted by pregnancy. With guidance and direction, the young mothers can learn to support themselves and their children independently.
