Partnering with new and expectant mothers to build a thriving future for themselves and their families.

The goal of self-sufficiency is possible through a coaching program focusing on:

  • Education
  • Parenting skills
  • Financial literacy
  • Occupation
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Health &Wholeness(Mind, Body, &Spirit)


Saving lives by empowering mothers

Our Programs:

  • St. Raymond’s House:  We have established transitional homes in Columbia and Jefferson City where women and their children may live while they participate in our comprehensive self-sufficiency program. This is typically a year-long commitment in which they will receive individualized coaching, accountability, and support.
  • Community Client Program:  For mothers who have stable housing but need help improving their self-sufficiency skills, we offer a 12-week program that includes one on one coaching, accountability, and access to classes and events at the St. Raymond’s House.
  • Temporary Assistance:  Recognizing that otherwise independent families sometimes face emergency situations like job loss or health crises, we assist with making community resource connections, providing necessities like baby items, diapers, personal hygiene products, and have limited funds available for one-time rent/utility assistance.

If you are a pregnant woman or new mother in need of assistance, our compassionate and non-judgmental staff would love to talk to you about how we can help you change your life and reach your  goals. Please visit the Client Application page above.
