The mission of Mother Teresa House is to provide a safe space where residents of the served communities can come for direct help in the areas of emergency food assistance, nursing-based medical screening and assessment, with some physician participation, and telephonic referral to other Greenville agencies offering a large variety of services to the poor and the disadvantaged. MTH is entirely dependent on church and other donor funding to cover operating costs.
Mother Teresa House, at 110 James Drive, is located in the Pleasant Valley Neighborhood. It is a renovated residence purchased by Our Lady of the Rosary Parish and totally refurbished with Parish volunteer help and donations, to serve as a social outreach center for the Pleasant Valley Neighborhood, the Shemwood Apartment complex, and the homeless population residing in the 5 motels across Augusta and Mauldin Roads.
If you are in need of any of the services provided by Mother Teresa House, please call 864-412-7101 and leave a message that includes your full name and phone number where you can be reached, and someone will return your call in a timely manner.
