To date, Casa Teresa has served more than 6,000 women and babies in more than 40 years of service, currently accommodating up to 54 women and babies at full capacity. Led by a 19-member Board of Directors, we have 29 dedicated full-time and part-time members as well as 375 volunteers giving more than 8,500 hours of service teaching classes, babysitting, providing professional support and guidance, tutoring, and landscaping. Together, this team is eager to continue expanding and deepening services that empower mothers to reclaim their lives and nurture healthy families.
During our years of service, Casa Teresa’s residential model has proven successful for many mothers and babies. However, we have also seen many mothers who made great progress in our programs continue to struggle on their own, as housing costs, low wages, and financial stresses continue to burden them. In response to this need, the Dr. James Pugh Alumni Resource Center (ARC) is open to all former Casa Teresa residents as a safety net that supports self-sufficiency for themselves and their children.
