Mary’s Path has helped
thousands of pregnant teenage girls.

Since opening in 1985, we’ve helped many girls from the Orange County foster care system, who are often victims of abuse, and sex or drug trafficking,

Thanks to generous supporters like you,
in just the past 12-months we have supported:

54 teen moms

transitioned into our family-oriented home

23 healthy babies

welcomed into the world

41 girls

graduated into transitional living facilities


Our achievements, and the success of our girls, depend on the generosity of supporters like you.

You are changing lives two at a time. Yet, there is still more work to do.

Please help us care for our community’s teen moms by making a donation today!





Volunteers are critical components to our success.
At Mary’s Path, we rely on volunteers 80 hours a week to keep our mission in motion.
Currently we are seeking volunteers to fulfill the following roles:

  • Mentors – The majority of the teen girls who enter Mary’s Path come from the foster care system. They lack stability in their life and have experienced extreme trauma. Matched to a particular girl, mentors serve as a teacher, role model and advisor, helping the girl clarify and achieve her dreams. While mentors are asked to commit 2 hours per week to their mentee, many mentor-mentee relationships extend far beyond the teen’s time at Mary’s Path.
  • Child Care – Become a “cuddler” one morning every week and watch precious babies grow and help them flourish. Or volunteer to be on-call for child care at Mary’s Path on occasional evenings while teen mothers attend special events. 
  • Enrichment – If you have a special talent, skill or interest that you would like to share with Mary’s Path for the benefit of our girls and babies, please let us know. This can be anything from cooking or baking instruction to fixing things to specializing in special needs children.
  • Board of Directors – Each year, individuals supporting the mission of Mary’s Path and willing to make a three-year commitment to provide leadership, vision, governance and resource development are invited to join the board.
  • Special Event Committees – Help produce our special events that generate both friends and funds for Mary’s Path.


Each year, dozens of teen moms, babies, and toddlers visit Mary’s Path.
