About Our Organization
Martha’s Foundation was established by Myrtle Watson in 2010 as a tribute to the compassion of her mother, Martha. Mrs. Watson has over 40 years of experience working as a registered nurse, including 24 years as an RN/case manager at the Margaret Hudson Program in Tulsa. Through her work at Margaret Hudson, Mrs. Watson became aware that many girls lacked a safe, supportive home environment after classroom hours.
The Margaret Hudson Program provided pregnant and parenting teen mothers an opportunity to continue their education with the support of child care and comprehensive social and health services. The program ceased operation in 2017.
To provide pregnant teens with a safe residence and assist them in becoming independent and productive community members.
To meet each client’s needs as a parent and in completion of a formal education e.g. high school graduation, technical training, college attendance or gainful employment prior to discharge from the residence.
