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 wish I would have had the support and knowledge that St. Raymond's Society offers these young mothers when I was younger. I am amazed at what they are able to accomplish and blessed to have been able to help with these young ladies and their babies.
Giving a hand up instead of a hand out . . . helping someone stand on their own two feet . . . now that’s something that my wife and I believe in. We’ve worked hard to have what we have and we want to help others have nice things too. St. Raymond’s Society is teaching these young ladies how to work for what they want. With grit and determination. By the time they leave that House they are going to know how to get things done.
Janey is a perfect representation of the saying: if you think my hands are full you should see my heart . . . . one cannot help but see how full her heart is as she gently cares for her tiny triplets.
I am not proud to say it, but we were living in our car. It was a very scary time for us. I was told about St. Raymond’s Society by the WIC office. I called that day and by the end of the week they helped me and my children with everything we needed to get into an apartment. The ladies were all so kind and understanding. You could tell they really care about people.
