Mission

Our Mission is Life!

Mater Filius, Nebraska is a non-profit home created to help pregnant women who find themselves without the support of family or who are experiencing financial difficulties.

The mission of Mater Filius is to safeguard the life of the unborn child and defend the dignity of the child’s mother, regardless of how the child was conceived.

Our vision is to help expectant mothers learn about good parenting through our parenting workshops and through the education, caring and support of our volunteers, many of whom are mothers themselves.

Mothers and their babies receive services at Mater Filius for up to eight months following the birth of their child. During this time, they will learn to appreciate and understand the great blessing that has entered their life and how to best care for that blessing in a healthy and stable manner.

Following Catholic social teaching, we recognize that we are responsible to and for one another. This foundation is at the core of implementing our  mission and running our home. The Mater Filius community values that guide our work include the following:

  • Love
  • Hospitality
  • Community
  • Excellence

OUR HOPE

Our hope is to see young pregnant women healthy,
supported, safe, empowered, and equipped with
the necessary life and relationship skills they
need to build happy successful lives.

 

We pray to see a decrease in the number of
homeless pregnant teens and young women in the
Omaha and surrounding areas of Nebraska.

We are a transitional residence for pregnant women in a crisis situation. Our goal is to help you to have your baby in a safe, loving home while providing the support and guidance you need to get back on your feet to rebuild and give your children a positive start in life.
