STARTING NEW WITH
A LOVING AND COMFORTABLE HOME.
OUR MATERNITY HOMES.
Our maternity home is where all new residents begin. The home is comfortable and inviting, completely furnished, and has enough room for up to six residents. Each room is furnished with a twin bed, dresser, alarm clock, linens and towels. Our private rooms are also furnished with a crib.
A live-in residential manager (RM) oversees all activities in and around the home. The RM is an invaluable resource to the residents and is the primary support for their daily living.
In this home, we hope each woman finds the love and support she needs to succeed, along with on-going training for managing a household, and unlimited prayer and mentoring.
Our maternity home program serves single pregnant women in crisis who:
need a safe, stable home to live and carry their baby to full-term
choose life for their baby by parenting or placing for adoption
strongly desire to learn and improve their lives
want and need a relationship with God and others
have no other children residing with them

THE TRANSITION HOME.
The transition home located in Sanford, Florida opened in August of 2018 after a complete renovation to meet the ministry's needs. This addition expands our capacity to minister to women who graduate from the maternity home program. Often, these women need ongoing support and services critical to their stability and future independence.
This comfortable home has three bedrooms to serve the graduates and their newborn babies. Here they learn how to live independently while managing work, school and parenting responsibilities.
