Since our doors opened in 2001, we have helped over 500 young moms and their babies work toward a brighter future. As the only shelter for homeless parenting or pregnant teens in southern Oregon, we receive referrals from Jackson, Josephine, Curry, Douglas, and Klamath counties on a regular basis. Service organizations, church groups, foundations, volunteers with special skills, community partners, and generous donors —all are important reasons for our continued success.
Our home continues to be a haven of stability for girls in need of a secure home environment. When girls move into our home, they learn life skills to survive in the world as well as how to create a nurturing and loving family structure for their children.
Often this is the first time they have been exposed to family dinners, a peaceful atmosphere, and loving guidance. We are happy to encourage positive changes in each young mother’s life while living at Magdalene Home.
We are able to house 5 residents at a time and each girl has her own room that she shares with her child. The rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished with a bed, bedding, dresser, nightstand, crib, and changing table. Other rooms in the home include two full bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, and laundry room. We also have a fenced backyard with a play structure and large deck for outdoor activities.
