Mother Child provides temporary housing in Woodbury, New Jersey, for women over the age of 18 who are currently experiencing homelessness and are either pregnant or parenting one to three children. Services include:

  • emergency shelter for mothers and children
  • on-site counseling and case management
  • educational classes focused on parenting, anger management, communication, & substance abuse
  • assistance with creating and implementing goals for self-sufficiency with a focus on employment, education, & housing
  • transitional housing

During their approximate three-month stay at Mother Child, women strive to become self-sufficient by:

  • developing and implementing an intensive case management plan to assist them with meeting their educational goals, seeking employment, & searching for permanent housing
  • participating in on-site educational workshops focused on life skills, parenting, nutrition, healthy living, home management & communication skills
  • attending supportive counseling sessions if needed

The Maternity Group Home at Mother Child is a service for pregnant and parenting women ages 18-21 who are experiencing homelessness. This free and confidential service requires no placement paperwork and offers the same intensive case management and emergency shelter services as Mother Child.
