Mother's Lifeline

Mother’s Lifeline is an active outreach ministry designed to meet the needs of mothers of infants and toddlers in crisis situations.

Our mission is to be part of a community support network for mothers of limited economic means. We aim to utilize the gifts, talents and skills of our faith community to give support and assistance to mothers and their young children.

Who Do We Help?

Referrals by Social Workers of hospitals and women’s shelters, pregnancy hotlines, and word of mouth, create a great need for baby furniture, clothing, and related items. Because it is a community service, we provide support to all faiths and parishes. Our distribution area is generally limited to the East Valley, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa and Gilbert.

How can I help?

You can help out in 2 ways:

  1. Volunteer! Parishioners are needed to organize the supply closet and to meet clients at parish facilities to supply the requested items.
  2. Donate! Mother’s Lifeline volunteer network receives several calls each week for practical assistance. Needs can be basic clothing, diapers, food, car seats, and furniture. We have an endless need for:
