Homelessness in Colorado Springs

A single mom of two kids needs to make $57,000 annually to be self-sufficient in Colorado Springs. But, income for single moms is under $30,000 a year.

One child in every public school classroom experiences homelessness each year.

1 in 4 renters pay more than half their income on rent.

Who are these families?

65% of women who are homeless have children with them and will fight to care for their children over themselves.

92% have experienced severe physical and or sexual abuse. 

These brave, resilient women are the fastest growing segment of people experiencing homelessness, yet they are often hidden from our awareness because they are not begging on street corners

More than a Home.

A Place to Rebuild.

We exist to create a safe haven for women escaping cycles of poverty, abuse, and homelessness in our community. After a thorough application process, Mary’s Home residents are given access to:

Supportive Relationships

No Longer Alone

“I never had supportive relationships. I was always fending for myself. I don’t really know what to do at Mary’s Home! There are so many people surrounding me who care about me and want to see me succeed. I feel so supported and encouraged. This is the beginning of a new life and the opportunity to embrace community.”

– A mom at Mary’s Home

The Mary’s Home Journey

It all starts with a desire to change. Mary’s Home is open to any single-mother family experiencing crisis who desires to heal and commit to a life-changing process. Unlike many poverty centers and short-term programs, we treat the whole individual, preferring to develop deep, long-term relationships with families and create lasting change.

Janet’s Story

“I left in the middle of the night, I had nothing. I was barefoot running for my life.”

This is Janet’s story. With her two kids and one on the way, Janet fled an abusive relationship with a broken rib, black eyes, and bruises everywhere. Fearing for her life, Janet left everything she knew to make a new life for her and her family.

That’s when Janet found Mary’s Home.

“If I did not get into Mary’s Home, I do not know where I would be.”

Today, Janet and her family are thriving! She’s in school to become an RN and her children’s smiles grow bigger and better every day. She’s an advocate for domestic violence survivors and incredible woman of God.

Janet’s is just one of so many incredible stories of growth, reliance, courage, and determination. Because of the impact of Mary’s Home, moms in the Pikes Peak region a safe space to heal and unlock the potential they have within them, breaking the cycle of generational poverty that holds so tightly.

Your involvement, whether through prayer, volunteering or finances, helps moms find hope and healing through intentional community and programming.

Join Dream Centers in writing hope-filled endings to the stories of women and children.
