Providing Hope and Care for Pregnant Women in South Florida

Our mission is to safeguard the life of the unborn child and defend the dignity of the mother, 

regardless of how the child was conceived while providing support and resources to protect and nurture new life.


Since the day our doors first opened, Mater Filius has had the privilege of welcoming 38 pregnant young mothers into our program. Among them, six arrived with young children, and celebrated the birth of 18 beautiful babies.

As we gather, remember Psalm 127:3, "…children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward," emphasizing our commitment to treating every woman, especially those with the gift of life, with dignity and love. 

The Power of Hope


We provide a supportive, safe, nurturing, and stable home environment with furnished rooms, 

and three nutritious meals per day.

In our home, all expectant mothers are welcome no matter their socioeconomic 

situation, marital status, race, or religious belief

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.
