Mother House provides at-risk mothers and their babies with a nurturing, supportive, and empowering residential community.
The Mother House program was created over 37 years ago by a group of caring women in the city of Boulder after they noticed several homeless women who were pregnant and without support. At first, they invited these women into their home so that they could receive a warm bed, support and remain safe. Then, with the help of local organizations and businesses, Mother House was established in a house near the University of Colorado.
In 1996, after a large fundraising campaign, the program was moved to a beautiful new residence in downtown Boulder to accommodate more women.
Today, thanks to ongoing community support, Mother House continues to be a place where women and their babies thrive. We're proud to provide comprehensive services unlike any other in the state of Colorado.
"Thank you so much for everything, without you I wouldn't have a chance at keeping my baby and I know I'd be using again. Because of Mother House I know I have a chance at having everything be ok. I don't know what I would do without you."
