Living Soul Foundation provides shelter for mothers in distress; to educate, equip, and encourage new life as they return to their communities transformed to lead and disciple others to positively impact the next generation.


The situation of young women, who become pregnant out of wedlock, is unfortunately common around the world. These young mothers are often marginalized, denied medical care, and disowned by their families at their time of greatest need. This can and does lead to prostitution, gender violence and loss of infants and young mothers during labor. Further, these young mothers fall victim to unhealthy emotion, unprepared to nurture and support new life into the world facing homelessness, hunger, guilt, shame and deep loneliness.


We deliver immediate relief by providing shelter for each mother in distress. We provide interim comfort by loving and encouraging each mother to understand that they are precious and loved by God. As we educate each mom, providing her with necessary life skills, we hope to see her re-enter her community transformed and prepared to positively impact the next generation.


The objective of our program is to return each mother and child to her community, transformed to live life as a productive member of her society. Our program begins with women as they experience one of the most critical and tender moments in their lives, pregnancy. By engaging them during this time period, we are better able to equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to experience love, life, hope, and restoration.

Program Offerings:

  • Shelter
  • Spiritual/Trauma Counseling
  • Medical/Health Supervision and Attention
  • Micro-Business and Trade Education
  • Home Economics Planning

The Bible says that God comforts us in all our tribulation, and that we may help those in trouble with the same comfort with which we ourselves receive it from Him.

As a young single mother herself, Michelle Contreras was blessed with immeasurable comfort and support, by and through God, as she raised her daughter Bryana. As Bryana grew into adulthood, Michelle sensed a growing desire in her heart to be used by God to comfort others in their time of need. Ultimately, in 2010, she moved to Africa and has since been serving as a missionary in Tanzania, assisting families in need.

Michelle grew an increasing burden to address the difficulties and dangers of young women who became pregnant out of wedlock. It was out of this heightened desire to comfort, educate, and equip young mothers that Michelle founded Living Soul Foundation in 2014.
