Pay It Forward - Community Funded Respite

Effective May 1, 2024, A Mother’s Rest must make an immediate financial shift to a community-funded model.

Our major donors from years past are no longer able to help fill the gaps between the requested guest donations and our actual operational costs. Without your individual monthly support right now, we will be forced to sell one of our respite inns if we hope to keep AMR alive.

ALL guests and supporters of our respite inns and overall AMR mission need to dig as deep as you can with a monthly commitment of $25 a month (or more) to ensure the survival of A Mother’s Rest.

We truly need your donations to be monthly (there is a box to tick on the PayPal donation form to Make This A Monthly Donation). Thank you!

Donations can also be made by check, saving us PayPal fees to:
