Providing hope and care
Mater Filius Miami
"Defending Life with Love"
Since its inception, Mater Filius has helped over 800 mothers who chose life.
At Mater Filius (Latin for Mother and Child) we reinforce the dignity of the mother and illuminate the gift of life within her.
Mater Filius Miami is a Catholic apostolate created to help pregnant women in the south Florida area who find themselves without support. Along with housing, we provide food, clothing, coordination of medical care, and a specialized plan for each mother, to lift her in dignity and give her the tools to succeed - all free of charge - from the time the she enters the Mater Filius Miami home until her baby is 8 months old.
At Mater Filius Miami, all life is sacred. We accept pregnant women in need regardless of race, socioeconomic status, marital status, or religious affiliation.
