Martha's HomeMartha's Home 1

Through the generous gift of the David and Mary Mullin family, Martha’s Home moved into its permanent location at 1204 SW 18th in June, 1989. 

This large, five bedroom residence is the home of up to ten women, who are allowed to live at Martha’s Home for 90 days while working or attending school. 

The experienced and caring staff provides individual case management, connecting each woman with community resources to assist her in successful transition to permanent residency.

Martha's HomeMartha's Home 2

In 1992, a second home, located next door to Martha’s Home 1, was opened for women who have dependent children living with them.  Martha’s Home 2 has space for a total of 16 people, with room for four women and their children. Because these children may have fallen behind in their school work, Amarillo ISD provides a weekly tutor. 

The family atmosphere offers support and stability that many homeless mothers have lacked as children, thus ending the cycle of homelessness.

Martha's Home 3

Martha's HomeIn the summer of 2010, with the help of donors and community support, Martha's Home was able to purchase the property next door to our other three homes. This acquisition came with an incredible offer from the Texas Panhandle Builders Association who enlisted the help of over 50 local businesses. Each donated their time, products and services to level the existing house and build a brand new four bedroom, three bathroom home to satisfy our greatest need...an additional home big enough to house four mothers with their children. This house, opened December 1, 2011, is named Brian Watson Home for Families, in memory of the past president of the TPBA Remodelers Council.

Martha's Home 4

Martha's HomeMartha's Home 4 was purchased through a grant from the Mary E. Bivins Foundation, and after renovation it was opened in May, 2007.

This house is used as a transition home for an additional 3 month stay for women who have successfully completed their 90 day program at Martha's Home.

Either three single women or three mothers with up to seven children may live in this residence. Because Martha's Home 4 is located away from the immediate supervison of staff, only those women who have demonstrated a high level of responsibility are allowed to live there.
