Mother Teresa with Baby Liza

From Kathy DiFiore, Founder: "When I took my first pregnant teen into my own home in 1981, I never thought the day would come when I would be asking you to help support our shelters for mothers and their babies, our efforts to teach chastity and how to make better life choices, our almost 70 special needy families, and our inner city homeless women and their children.

We hope this website will provide you with a sense of who we are, our joyful events, the projects we support, as well as give you a sense of the value of our work.

Kathy DiFiore with President Ronald ReaganGod has truly blessed our efforts. But each and every month is a struggle. The pregnant, frightened teens keep contacting us by hotline, by email and through word of mouth. They have only us to turn to in their time of turmoil and abandonment. The homeless women appear at our door, pleading for food, clothing and just a clean, dry place to rest and feel safe. Our work can only continue with the support of people like you. Please consider donating to our ongoing work."
