Help for the whole person
Without mental and emotional stability, holding down a job, and supporting a family just isn’t possible. Research shows more than half of homeless mothers experience emotional or mental health challenges, such as depression and anxiety. The needs of people struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction are complex, but Mater Filius Queen City is passionate about helping mothers imrpove their lives mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our programs offer a variety of resources to meet their needs and to provide real help and hope.
Upon entering Mater Filius, each expectant mother will be assigned a doula. A doula is a confidante and metor. She will accompany the mother during her stay and ensure her well-being. Doulas help our mothers grow and develop a strong sense of confidence and self awareness to discover the greatness that lies inside their hearts.
