Our History

Hannah’s Home of South Florida provides a safe and loving Christian environment for single pregnant young women. Through counseling, life skills, and continuing education, we offer hope and transform lives.

Our Inspiration

“And Hannah prayed and said: My heart rejoices in the Lord; My horn is exulted in the Lord.”

1 Samuel 2:1

The horn represents power and strength, Through the birth of her child, Hannah found her strength and joy in God. Her story is an example about how God uses difficult human circumstances to bless us and to bring Him glory.

Our Values

Spreading the gospel through His Word

Responding to God’s call to serve those in need

Putting Christ first
in all that we do

Demonstrating God’s unconditional love

Our History

Carol Beresford founded the first Hannah’s Home in Mentor, Ohio. She had a vision of giving women an alternative to abortion. Sitting on a five acre property the home now houses up to 23 young pregnant women.

The vision continued to grow and Hannah’s Home of South Florida was birthed. We began our ministry as a referral service and a private residential placement program. 

Hannah’s Home of South Florida acquired a three acre property in Tequesta, Florida and began to renovate the existing facility.

Hannah’s Home opened their doors to a home that is large enough to house four women and their babies, a school room, and administrative offices. 

Hannah’s Home completed the addition that doubled our capacity to 8 women and their babies and added a fully equipped Child Care Center. 

Construction has begun on the New Life Chapel and Courtyard that will provide a place for prayer, meetings and small events. The Chapel Courtyard will provide a place to relax, pray, heal and grow. 


Plans have been developed and approved to build 4 duplex cottages that will house 8 moms and babies after they graduate from the initial 2 year program. We also have plans to build a two-story residence building that will accommodate up to 16 moms and babies.

Our growth has been the result of God’s abundant blessings, flowing through countless individuals and organizations that have partnered with us every step of the way. We are forever grateful and thankful to everyone who stands with us to support life.

As we celebrate our tenth anniversary since acquiring this property, we are overjoyed looking back at how God has abundantly blessed our ministry and mission. With renewed strength and passion, we look forward to our expansion and to serving the moms and babies who God will send our way.
