Our program is creating a lasting change that will affect not only the lives of the mothers we serve and the lives of their children, but also the generations that will follow.
We appreciate the SIZE OF THE GAP between poverty & homelessness to living wage jobs & economic security.
We are willing to stand in the gap by providing the basic needs and providing innovative, practical solutions that empower homeless, low-income, single mothers to reach economic self-sufficiency.
The strategic program is in place and already creating amazing results!
All we need now is for people like you to agree to “stand in the gap” with us.
Please give your most generous contribution TODAY to help us provide for the basic needs of these families while the mothers focus on becoming self-sufficient.

I have found a job and been able to continue my education with a roof over my head thank to St. Raymond's Society.
Zuleima personifies what St. Raymond’s Society is all about. Beyond her primary goal of being the very best mother possible to Dixie, she is highly motivated to earn her college degree and provide the very best life possible for Dixie.
I was a single mother myself, but I was fortunate enough to have strong family support. I shudder to think where I might have ended up without it. I know first-hand how important it is to have encouragement and support when you are trying to work, go to school, and build a life for yourself and your child. I am so pleased that we have a St. Raymond’s Society to help these young mothers navigate through all of the barriers that would otherwise prevent her from succeeding.
God has truly blessed our community with the addition of St. Raymond’s Society. As the executive director of Pregnancy Resource Center for more than 12 years, I know all too well of the plight of a single mothers, much less those who finds themselves homeless. It is with great confidence that we refer these mothers to St. Raymond’s Society. Not only will they be welcomed with open arms and given a place to stay, these mothers are put on a path to self-sufficiency.
