Every Life is Precious
Are you a pregnant woman in need of a safe and supportive place to stay? Are you going through a crisis pregnancy and looking for a nurturing home environment?
Mater Filius Miami is a Catholic apostolate created to help pregnant women in South Florida and surrounding areas who find themselves without support. Inside the Mater Filius house, women find the basic needs of life: shelter, food, clothes, safety, organization, order, support, hope, and peace.
Our home assists women and their babies during pregnancy, at childbirth, and for the subsequent months. We can help guide you along this life journey, regardless of your socio-economic status, marital status, ethnicity, or religious beliefs.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up!
Currently we are preparing our house in Southwest Ranches, FL to welcome new moms. In the meantime, we are referring expectant mothers to our Nebraska and Dallas homes and paying for travel expenses.
These are the services offered by our Nebraska and Dallas homes; some of these services will be available in Miami, once the house is up and running.
