Guadalupe Home is a transitional living program for homeless expectant mothers and homeless mothers with infants. During their stay at Guadalupe Home, mothers have a safe place to live and to prepare for birth, as well as have a home-like environment in which to nurture their baby. Women who come to Guadalupe Home are ready to improve their lives and the lives of their children.

How We Help
Guadalupe Home provides a safe haven and support services in a home-like environment for up to 10 mothers. Each mother can have two children under the age of three years. Private rooms are available for each family. Other living areas and household chores are shared among all residents. There is no fee to the resident for services; however, they must be willing to participate in an educational/employment program or maintain employment. Residents are expected to follow house rules and abide by curfew requirements.

Supportive services are provided to residents in an effort to increase their capability of having a healthy baby, improve their ability to care for themselves and their babies, and foster their desire to make a positive contribution to their community.

Case management services are provided to all of the residents, along with referrals to commonly needed services such as: Texas Department of Human Services, educational and employment programs, health care services, childbirth and parenting classes, housing programs and childcare. Residents are required to meet with their case manager on a weekly basis for counseling and support. Service plans and goals will be established to help residents succeed. We encourage our residents to take steps toward becoming independent while creating a new life for themselves and their babies. Through hard work and a step-by-step process, residents begin to stabilize.

Guadalupe Home provides opportunities for personal development to the residents, including assistance with goal-setting and achievement, establishing priorities, and decision-making. The staff at Guadalupe Home recognizes that spiritual development can play a positive role in personal development. By providing residents with an on-site meditation room, and a beautiful grotto, young mothers have a place where they can go for a few minutes a day and enjoy quiet reflection. In addition, churches of all denominations host baby showers, baptisms, and other special events in which mothers and their babies may participate, if they choose. 

Who qualifies for our program?
Homeless expectant mothers or homeless mothers with up to 2 children under the age of 3 years, who are able to live harmoniously in our community and who will participate in the services offered.
