If your question is not here, send us an email at (Please enable JavaScript to view this email address).

We receive our funding from grants, donations, matching gifts, special events, and a small amount of program revenue.  Mother House relies heavily on the support of our community partners - like you - to ensure we can keep our doors open.  Every gift counts and every community partner makes a big difference in our program and in our residents' lives.

We have a wish list here on our website & we update it as needed.

Please call #303-447-9602 or email info@mother-house.org to coordinate any drop offs or pickups.

We are located in downtown Boulder, Colorado. Our facility is within walking distance to bus stops, stores, providers and community services. If you make an appointment to visit, we'll give you exact directions.

Our program is by application and pregnant women have to be able to work at least 20 hours per week unless they are on bedrest or have prohbitive disability, they must also pay a small amount of rent, and live in a community setting. We serve women with varied backgrounds who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness. The majority are from Boulder but we've also had a few from out of state and out of the country.

We can't accept women under the age of 16, we can't accept any pregnant woman who is using drugs, alcohol and/or legal marijuana (but we will happily take someone who is in treatment or who is willing to be in treatment) ,and we can't accept anyone who can't live in a community setting with rules and expectations.

When a resident comes into Our program, they are required to look for transitional housing opportunities for low income families as soon as they get here. Because there is a shortage of this type of housing, some residents don't have long enough to wait.  When that has happened, some have found housing through public announcements or by moving in with family or friends. We try and prepare them for their graduation from Mother House and give them the tools for their future living situations.
