The Vision of Our Mother’s Home is to end the repetitive cycle of foster care and generational poverty that afflicts teen mothers and their children.
The Mission of Our Mother’s Home is to transition teen mothers and their children from foster care and human trafficking to stable, happy, and productive lives by providing a safe and nurturing home, education, parenting support, along with physical, mental and spiritual care.
Our Mother’s Home is a large home where up to ten teen mothers can live with their babies. It is unique in many ways, one being that we help teenage mothers from age twelve to twenty-one, as long as they stay in school or have a job. Any pregnant or postpartum Florida teen can stay here after the first trimester of pregnancy or with her child, if the baby has already been born.
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.
I have expressed to my peers and professors at Edison what a wonderful service you offer these teens with such care and compassion. I even listed you as “my hero” in one of our assignments (not kidding).Ann O.
Today was my first day as a volunteer for Our Mothers Home. I am moved beyond words by the level of support and outpouring of love provided to these young moms and their babies.Gayla C.
