Mary’s Shelter is thrilled to announce…


Star Parker as the Keynote Speaker at our
10th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser
August 13, 2016


Star Parker is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal & Education, a public policy think tank that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty.  After consulting on federal Welfare Reform in the mid-90s, she founded UrbanCure to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America’s poor from government dependency. Before involvement in social activism, Ms. Parker had seven years of first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency.

Ms. Parker has a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and International Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues.  She regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty; she has spoken at more than 190 colleges and universities about anti-poverty initiatives; she has authored several books; and she is a nationally-syndicated columnist with Morris Communication Group. Ms. Parker’s staunch pro-life convictions and anti-poverty activism go hand-in-hand with the mission of Mary’s Shelter.  We are honored and excited to have Ms. Parker share her experience and vision with us.

2014 A-Cross America Relay

2014 A-Cross America Relay

Posted by on Mar 4, 2014 in Announcements, Events |

We have an exciting fundraiser to tell you about. On March 14th, a team of friends of Mary’s Shelter will be participating in the “A Cross America Relay” to raise awareness and donations for pro life ministries.  This team has been organized by Chad Finch, to “adopt” portions of this race to benefit Mary’s Shelter.  Our very own Board of Director’s member, Mark Ivory will also be joining this event along with runner Howard Thomas.  They will be running on the C&O Canal Path in Hancock, Maryland and will, as a team, complete multiple, consecutive legs of the race, totaling just about the length of a marathon.  Talk about walking the walk, or in this case, running the run!

You can donate to this event by going to our Donations page.
