On behalf of the Mother and Me Tea Steering Committee, thank you for your interest in our event, as we celebrate Mother’s Day weekend while raising funds to support Saint Louise House.

Saint Louise House provides housing and essential services to homeless mothers and children in Austin. A lot of people don’t know, but the fastest growing population segment of those experiencing homelessness in Austin is women and children. Saint Louise House provides a haven and a safe place to sleep, as well as keeping the family together, so they can receive the support and tools needed to develop long-term stability and self-sufficiency.

The Mother and Me provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the strength of mothers, while your support directly impacts the lives of these moms and kids who call Saint Louise House “home.”

We appreciate your support of the Mother and Me Tea.
