ABOUT MARTHA'S HOME
In a world of poverty where you don’t know when or if you’ll eat again, or where you’ll sleep when darkness falls, Martha’s Home steps in and provides refuge, safety and security, a home for those without one, and a wide range of programs to help women and children in need rebuild their lives and re-enter society as self-sufficient and responsible citizens.
In addition to caring for the daily physical needs of our residents, Martha’s Home offers more than just a hand out, we give a hand up. We offer case management, referral services, life necessities, and housing assistance. We encourage women to empower themselves, both emotionally and physically, realizing their unique potential. The women at Martha’s Home are diligently working to further their education, secure full-time employment, and gain personal living skills to become productive members of our community.
WE BELIEVE ALL WOMEN CAN EMBRACE WHO THEY ARE, CAN DEFINE THEIR FUTURE, AND CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
GIVING A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT
