Providing dignified housing for pregnant moms and their children in the Springs

Mater Filius Colorado Springs is God’s call to our community to provide the first home in the Springs specifically to address the needs of pregnant moms. 

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

Since we operate as a true ministry – not as a social services agency – we can keep our operating costs very low compared to similar 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 donation helps us budget and be the best steward of our funds}!
