Hello, my name is
Tressa Spires. I started Mary’s Safe House in October 2013. MSH is a
faith-based organization. The goal of MSH is to offer a safe stable
home for homeless single mothers. We will help them identify
the steps needed to achieve and maintain stability in their own homes, We have helped 9 mothers that have been with us find services they needed. The mothers have stayed in contact and we are thrilled!
I continue to have mothers contact me. I would say an average of at least 3 women a week. This is heartbreaking. My goal for
2017 is to have a house and funding for the house for at least a year.
Our estimate to sustain a house for a year is $130,000 this would include
paying a house mom to stay 24/7 for supervision. All of the staff
members, including myself, will not be paid. We do this just as volunteers. We
are now a non-profit status 501(c)(3). This will allow people who
donate to us and claim that on their tax returns as a donation. Our biggest need is
monthly supporters who are willing to give these mothers a second chance. To be honest I am
new at doing a shelter, but I am learning so much along the way. With
God’s help and my determination, we will help these single mothers.
Every person’s situation
is different but the courage to keep their children no matter what situation arises, and wanting to give them a great life, to me shows great
strength and accountability. With a little help and a strong support system, these moms and
children can lead amazing lives.
Please take a moment to continue to check out the website or look us up on Facebook.
Even if you cannot help financially, please consider praying for us, and tell a few friends. Thank you for taking the time to read about this amazing opportunity to help keep single mothers and their children off the streets.
