Supporting Young Mothers And Babies

Our mission is to shelter and educate homeless, pregnant and parenting young women by providing comprehensive services and empowering them to make successful life decisions for themselves and their babies.


    Supporting Young Mothers and Babies in the Kansas City Area

    Mother’s Refuge is a home filled with love, warmth, and acceptance supporting homeless, young mothers and babies in the greater Kansas City area. Since 1987, we have provided a safe place to live by offering food, shelter, and medical care for the mother and child.

    Giving young mothers a hand-up, not a handout, is essential to the Mother’s Refuge mission.  That is why we established the Five Pillars to Independence and require residents to continue their education while learning to care for their baby.

    If you would like to support homeless, young moms and their babies, Mother’s Refuge is the place to share your prayers, time, and financial support.  Join us today and help change a life.
