Description: Office Hours:
Our mission is to shelter and educate homeless, pregnant, and parenting young women by providing comprehensive services that empower them to make successful life decisions for themselves and their babies.
We are located at:
3721 Delridge, Independence, MO 64052
(One block north of Highway 40 and Hardy St.)
Our home is filled with love, warmth and acceptance to all the young ladies that call Mother’s Refuge home.
More than 1,550 pregnant young women have found refuge at our home since 1987. With a sun deck, shade trees and swings, our residents have plenty of reasons to enjoy the warm summer sun. During the cold winter months, they may enjoy hot cocoa and popcorn while playing board games, cards or watching movies in the great room.
The home has seven bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen, a dining room and television room for residents and their babies. Girls also have access to a computer-learning center to learn computer skills, complete homework assignments or research community services. Washers and dryers make laundry convenient. Residents can walk to nearby restaurants, Gates BBQ, QT, Subway, Cool Crest Miniature Golf and a nearby bus stop.
We are located on a spacious corner lot in Independence, Missouri, not far from the Truman Sports Complex and down the road from Blue Ridge Corners and Wal-Mart.
Pregnant residents share a bedroom while waiting to give birth. After their baby is born, they share a private bedroom with their baby.
