Mater Filius Colorado Springs is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. Gifts made to Mater Filius Colorado Springs are are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.  A copy of our 501(c)(3) determination letter is available here. EIN: 87-0886078

Help us provide dignified housing for pregnant moms and their children in the Springs!

Currently there is no home in the Springs specifically to address the needs of pregnant moms.

Mater Filius Colorado Springs is God’s call to our community to address that need. Together, we can Defend Life with Love!

St. Gabriel Catholic Church has generously provided land on their campus to build our home.

As in our founding organization, our home will host up to 10 moms and their children, with a chapel, playroom, and more!

Since we will operate as a true ministry – not as a social services agency – we will keep our operating costs very low compared to similar maternity homes nationwide.

Please prayerfully consider Defending Life with Love:


We need a whole community to Defend Life with Love!

Be a Life Defender (Pledge Partner)!

Life Defenders commit to recurring donations. {Even if you just spread out what you would normally give at one time, pledging a recurring monthly or quarterly donation helps us budget and be the best steward of our funds}!

Donations by check may be sent to our PO Box, below.
