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.
Please note the location you’d like your donation to be dedicated to in the Memo section on the Donate Form, if applicable.

Living at St. Ray’s House was a profound experience for me. I learned so much while living there! My biggest take away was probably in the life skills department, especially time management and self-discipline. The thing I like best about St. Ray’s is that I will always be a part of the St. Raymond’s Society. I still meet with my Success Coaches every week and my Accountability Partner every month. The kids and I are invited to all of the St. Ray’s outings, celebrations and events. The only difference is that I have my own house now so sometimes we meet here.
Never have I seen such young women accomplishing such great things!
It has been the most amazing experience to see the women grow and step into themselves!
I have been working with single mothers for more than two decades and this program is the most practical, self-driven, life-changing, program I have ever seen. I am honored to be a part of it.
