The new mothers will begin to learn to pay their own way by putting 30% of their earnings each month into an account (similar to an escrow account) which will be returned to them at the end of their stay in The Maternity of Mary Homes for Mothers in Crisis, in the same manner as a security deposit on a rental. When returned, these funds can be used to pay security deposit on an apartment, utility deposits, etc. Through various classes the pregnant mother will have an opportunity to learn a variety of things for daily living. The pregnant mother will be connected with medical assistance for the best pre-natal care available. The mothers will have an opportunity to go to school and complete their education or avail themselves of our "Trades for Transition" program.
