Mary’s Home is a project developed by the non-profit organization, Dream Centers of Colorado Springs. This project is a direct result of their mission to provide health and hope for those working to rebuild their dreams and lives. A primary goal from the beginning was to provide “Dignity through Design”, to create a space that felt warm, welcoming, and dignified, and NOT like subsidized housing. Underprivileged mothers and their children will be able to call this place home as they learn to rebuild their skills and lives in a community environment; creating a foundation for a successful future.
