Carmen recently arrived at Mater just weeks away from delivering a baby girl. She came to the US seeking a better future for herself and her baby, forced to leave two children behind in Venezuela. 

Today she is receiving essential prenatal care and learning valuable life skills, along with English through the assistance of a volunteer English teacher. She’s been deciding on her baby’s name and now has restored hope that a better future awaits her and her children.

At Mater, we are the refuge expectant moms in crisis need when deciding to have their baby and look for ways to become independent thriving members of our community. Our services are only possible through the generosity of friends like you. 

Your gift today will have double the impact through our match campaign. Please be as generous as you can.
