Our programs supporting women

Agencies of Potter’s Gate Charities offer pro-active support services to disadvantaged women and mothers. This process strengthens families and reduces poverty, enriching society for generations to come.

In the United States and around the world, our agencies respond to the urgent needs of women and mothers. But there’s troubling news. An increase in the number of pregnant women and teens, homeless with nowhere to turn. Because of this, more working families wonder how they will feed their children.

Women account for a greater percentage of the global population in poverty. Statistically, there are twice as many female heads of household with no male present living in poverty than male heads of household with any females present.

Furthermore, even today, men earn more money than women for the same work.

Most of the world's hungry people are in Asia and Africa, with 520 million and 243 million, respectively. But proportionally Africa is hardest hit, with 20 percent of people not having enough food. Support our mission to make a positive change in the lives of these underprivileged children and disadvantaged families.

Strengthening Families and Reducing Poverty!

How we support impoverished women

Although the situation is dire, we offer some incredible local programs supporting women and their families.

  • Emergency and transitional shelters for homeless women and their children provide much more than a roof over a family’s head. These shelters strive to improve families’ economic self-sufficiency by providing case management, tutoring, parenting classes, life skills and job training.
  • Permanent housing facilities for homeless and chronically homeless women. This provides varying amounts of financial support for women with multiple economic barriers. Therefore, more women can acquire the income required to maintain their own housing.
  • Maternity homes offer comprehensive services for women living independently after the birth of a child. These services include education and parenting classes as well as preparedness training.
  • Pregnancy counseling programs help expectant mothers resolve any immediate physical, environmental, and emotional needs and challenges. These programs also support women and teens in difficult situations, guiding them to make decisions that are right for them.
