Once inside the dining room, guests had an opportunity to hear the live jazz music from the Black Tuesday Jazz Band, to view and bid on over 70 silent auction items and to purchase a ticket to participate in the "KING CAKE" game (a Mardi Gras tradition). One winner was awarded a week in Hawaii at a condo courtesy of Mel and Rhea Kowardy and a second winner received a beautiful amethyst dinner ring . A scrumptious New Orleans style dinner was prepared by the Foothill Grill and the ROP students from El Dorado high school

Letter From Former MTMH Resident
Hello, my name is Michelle. I was a resident at Mother Teresa Maternity Home 04/28/12 07/28/12. This program was a huge blessing to me and my son, Riley. Riley was born 4/24/12 in Carmichael, CA. CPS made me voluntarily sign temporary custody over due to my homelessness. The hospital Social Work
er gave me some Phone Number
s of maternity homes, and I was released from the hospital without my child. This was heart breaking!! First thing the next morning, I called the maternity homes on the list. Mother Teresa's was the first one that had an opening, and Joni conducted the phone interview with me. I was told I could come that same day with my newborn child. I arrived that same day to Mother Teresa's
and was so thankful for the program and the accommodations. I was shown several beautiful rooms to choose from and left to settle into my new place and beginning of our new life. Mother Teresa Home is an amazing program to help pregnant and new mothers get back on their feet and build a foundation for successful futures. While at Mother Teresa's, I was given structure, skills,& tools to thrive on my own. For example, each resident took turns planning and preparing dinner for the house, did mandatory community service and searched for jobs. Mother Teresa's isn't just a transitional home, but a place to regain important life skills, necessary to be a parent in our busy world.
I now have a 2-bedroom apartment where Riley and I live. Riley will be two in April and couldn't be busier. He's a healthy, happy toddler. I work full-time as a Department Manager
at Walmart. I just want to reiterate what a blessing Mother Teresa's was for us. Mother Teresa's gave us a new beginning and a wonderful foundation to` beautiful lives. Riley came to visit MTMH showing us he's a big boy now
