Housing & Support
A Path to Stability
Our goal is to help young mothers and their children build the foundation for a strong family, successful career and lifelong independence.
As a residential facility, we operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
St. Ann's Center operates three supportive housing programs for at-risk mothers and their children: Grace House, Hope House & Faith House. Our wrap-around services include an education and employment program, nursing care, parenting classes, life skills training, child care, individual and family counseling, and social and cultural activities.
The home of our Teen Mother & Baby Program, Grace House offers residential care for pregnant adolescents and young mothers (ages 13-21) and their babies.
A transitional and supportive housing program for pregnant and parenting women experiencing homelessness and instability.
A dynamic employment support program designed to help young families overcome the barriers to career mobility and success. Our on-site Employment Counselor supports clients in their job searches and provides one-on-one career guidance, including resume writing assistance, mock interviews, job etiquette guidance, budgeting and volunteer opportunities.
In our on-site, Education Center, pregnant and parenting young women have the opportunity to receive tutoring, GED preparation courses and gain internship experience.
A key component of our housing programs is our on-site parenting and life skills curriculum, offering classes in subjects ranging from cooking to money management to violence prevention.
