Shelter From the Rain, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, based out of Savannah, Georgia, designed to enrich the lives of single mothers and children in need through acts of kindness that nurture the mind, body, and soul.
Our New Programs Include:
Shelter From the Rain needs your help! Our Pantry Pal program is the collection of supplies for low-income single-parent homes. The following are items needed: canned goods, non-perishable Items, and paper products.
Support and encouragement from other moms is great for building the spirit of a single mother. The Mommy Meetup program allows moms to meet with other moms while their children play and have fun. This group meets at: playgrounds, libraries, churches, and other safe, family-friendly environments.
We believe that every mother should be treated like a queen and every queen needs someone in her corner. Named after the late Mary Queen Graham, a single mother of twenty-four years, this program is designed to support single mothers through notes of encouragement, gently used clothing/shoes and small gifts. Contact us today to nominate a mom for this program or to "adopt-a-mom" to encourage with acts of kindness!
This program equips mothers with the tools needed for job preparation. Shelter From the Rain volunteers conduct practice interviews with mothers who are preparing for internships or full-time employment. Our volunteers help mothers format cover letters and resumes in Microsoft Word, practice interviewing, complete applications and use the Internet to search for jobs.

The Interplay program focuses on working with local groups to help meet community needs. This allows the ministry to extend support to organizations that are designed to help others, such as Salvation Army, maternity homes, missions facilities, and advocacy groups.
The Daily Deeds program focuses on simple acts of kindness that can be done each day. These acts can include various efforts including: giving out umbrellas in the rain, letting someone go ahead of you in line, donating books to a library, passing out bottled water in the park, holding the door open for someone, leaving a generous tip, cooking a meal for someone, or donating used clothing. Participants encourage others to join efforts by using the Shelter From the Rain Kindness Card. See below.
