Dear Friend,

Thank you for supporting the families residing at St. Ann’s Center! Your care and love enable our young mothers and their children to heal from the past, thrive in the present, and plan for their futures.

Your support also means that St. Ann’s can welcome new families at the beginning of their journeys – like the mother and her two babies who just entered our Hope House transitional housing program in January.

From the bottom of my heart – Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you!

Sister Mary Bader, CEO
