Moms of Maristella is a club which provides a support group among the mothers to help lead them to self-sufficiency. We hold monthly meetings with speakers to talk about such topics as:

Clients who attend these meetings receive special benefits during the Holidays. At Thanksgiving time each family receive a food basket and a turkey. At Christmas time, clients fill out a wish list for their families. Christmas parties are held. Volunteers and staff participate with the clients and families. It is always a joy to see the children enjoying games and partying together.
