We opened on Mother’s Day in 1988 to offer programs to families in need with the primary focus being the shelter for women and children. We provide shelter, food and hygiene products to families, along with promoting their strengths and addressing their weaknesses. Through guidance, encouragement, referrals and case management services, we help families in reaching and maintaining independence, strengthening family bonds, promoting healthy pregnancies, and improving decision-making skills.
Shelter Success Stories
Before coming to the Madonna House, I was living in Peoria, IL with my children. I was in an abusive relationship. I was afraid for my children and my lives and well-being. I heard about the Madonna House through another shelter that was for abused women and children. When I first contacted the staff at Madonna House, they were very nice and helpful to me. The staff made me feel welcomed and were helpful with my transition. The Madonna House helped me build self-confidence; help me know that there is more to life than abuse. I learned how to be stable, be successful, and they were very supportive to my children and me. My family is now closer than ever. Madonna House helped me become more independent by teaching me how to budget, and taught me life skills. Yes, I would recommend Madonna House to anyone who needed help. It is a very loving, caring, understand, safe, stable, successful place to be. I loved being at the Madonna House. All the staff are wonderful, caring, supportive individuals.
