The Need

There is a growing need for housing young pregnant women and their babies. Unplanned pregnancies often result in young women being rejected from their homes and living in unsafe environments. As a result, women have no other option than to abort.

Our Solution

There are too few maternity homes where residents can stay long-term. Hannah’s Home is unique in offering a two-year residential program that includes counseling, life skills classes, opportunities to further education, and an introduction to the Gospel. Homeless, pregnant young women are able to transform their lives in a safe and loving environment.
