For more than a decade The Mary Elizabeth House, Inc. has been transforming lives of young, single women and their families.
The young women we serve are either single mothers or pregnant. The majority of them are in or have aged-out of the child welfare system. All have experienced disruptions in family, traumas, instability and a host of other challenges that have substantially impacted their lives. These challenges place the young women, and their children, at-risk of living impoverished lives and increase the risk of a second generation entering the foster care system.
Our comprehensive approach to family support provides residential housing; life-skills training, parenting, and counseling that empower young women to be socially, emotionally and economically self-sufficient. Beyond supporting the positive development of pregnant and parenting young women, TMEHI provides early childhood development in the AsA Early Learning Academy for infants and toddlers. The AsA Early Learning Academy is certified by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Our program improves the lives of young families and advances future generations in substantive ways through a structured living environment, parenting skill development, education, counseling, training, and therapeutic services
