"LOVE begins at HOME and it is not how much we do but how much love we put in that action" - Mother Teresa (Painting by Peter A. Caruso, "Teresa Mother of the World")
The Pastoral mission of the Mother Teresa Home is to promote safety, stability and well-being for people who have experienced or been exposed to pressure in regards to their pregnancy. The Mother Teresa Home will achieve this through providing programs that provide shelter, community service, and education referral services for all mothers in need.
