Your Donation Makes a Difference

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.

"It is estimated as a nation that we spend approximately $1.1 billion total or $35,000 per homeless person each year in order to pay for healthcare, emergency shelters, and criminal justice and social services” (University of Toronto Medical Journal, 2004). Accordingly, SRS equates to a $19 return on investment (as preventative savings) for every community $1 spent. (Community Asset Builders, Jefferson City)

how we have helped

I couldn’t be where I am today without their help.

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.

I appreciate the resources and services St. Raymond’s Society provides our community’s single mothers and their children.  This is an organization that offers a real solution, not just and band aid and I can get behind that.  They are creating lasting changes in the lives of families.

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.
