Thrive Like a Mother



We help mothers in crisis and their babies receive the care, support, and resources they need to navigate pregnancy and their new role as mothers. Beyond basic needs, our program offers women the ability to develop the skills to be successful, responsible, and confident citizens and parents. At Mother House, we don’t shelter women—we strengthen them.


It takes a village.

This is ours.

Started in 1982, Mother House has provided at-risk mothers and their babies with a nurturing, supportive, and empowering residential community. While similar programs may simply be a shelter for expecting mothers, we give women the support and resources they need to walk out of our doors more prepared for success than when they came in. It’s our way of enabling our mothers to thrive, so their children will too.

Our Program

The support to get yourself back on your feet.

Mother House is located in Boulder, Colorado. More than a shelter, Mother House is a program that strives to build our residents' confidence and skills for a successful future. We serve pregnant women in need during their prenatal and postpartum journeys. Mother House provides education, stability, and support throughout pregnancy and the early months of motherhood.

Changing Lives. Changing Futures.

“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.”

- Camila, Former Resident
