St Ann's Center for Children, Youth & Families

St. Ann’s Center was founded in 1860 as an orphanage and maternity home to care for the foundlings and orphans of the Civil War. Today’s St. Ann’s is committed to lifting vulnerable children, mothers and families out of poverty and homelessness. Twenty-eight (28) moms and thirty-two (32) children call St. Ann’s home and benefit from on-site childcare and a robust parenting and life skills curriculum. The Center’s innovative housing and support programs build upon a family’s inherent strengths by providing the tools for life-long independence and self-sufficiency. St. Ann’s highly-trained staff and volunteers offer 24/7, wrap-around services and residential care for pregnant and parenting mothers, teen moms and their children.
