This year's Coastal Bend Day of Giving supports 50 area nonprofits on the forefront of assisting those in need, and the Mother Teresa Shelter is one of them.
From the Mother Teresa Shelter:
"The Mother Teresa Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, faith-based organization that provides comprehensive, community-based outreach services to homeless individuals and families, creating opportunities to help break the cycle of homelessness.

The Multi-purpose Activity and Therapeutic Center is an expansion of our programs and services to our homeless community where learning and social activities are incorporated.
