We have exciting news to share!!
As a member of our Casa Teresa Family, we wanted to share some exciting news with you.
The Board and Casa Teresa leadership worked together to create a plan to return our organization to fiscal stability. We are selling the property of our Emergency Maternity Shelter and bringing the program to the main campus. We are committed to the Emergency Maternity Program because we serve more pregnant women, children and babies annually through this program than our residential and transitional programs combined.
This move will create an annual budget savings of $300,000 and generate capital reserves. We also believe this will create greater efficiencies in our program and we will have 24/7 staffing on the main campus for increased security for our women and babies.
Additionally, we are surveying our alumnae to understand our impact, how we might enrich our current programming and how we might build collaborations to enhance the success of our women and their babies as they leave our program.
All of this will be taking place over the next two months. We will continue to send updates and offer tours once we are settled in! Ways you can help!
Guardian Angel Society: When you become a Guardian Angel (our monthly giving program), you help support the basic monthly needs of the women we serve. Learn more about this program and ways you can help.
Visit www.casateresa.org and scroll to the bottom of the page to select the “Guardian Angel” box. Your monthly gift will add up during the course of a year and make a difference!
One-time gift: You know it takes financial resources to move one house to another and our house has 11 women and babies (plus all the amazing staff who serve them daily). From the cost of movers and supplies, to painting and special storage beds to maximize space…your gift of any size will be a blessing!
Household supplies: With the move we will be in need of a few additional household items. As such, we have created a gift registry via Amazon where you can purchase some of these needed items if you’d like to support us in that way. If you select Casa Teresa as your charity on amazon and then shop on Amazon.smile.com, we get a percentage back!
