We’re More Than a Shelter

A large portion of the homeless population are young mothers who experience homelessness due to domestic violence, substance abuse, or other challenges. Unlike many homeless shelters, we never turn pregnant women in need away. We provide much more than a shelter. We’re a loving home.

How We Help the Mothers in Our Homes

Since 1985 we've helped more than 8,000 homeless, pregnant women in dire need throughout the United States. When family members are unable or fall short, we can be the support system you need.

For those who chose to enter one of our maternity homes in New York or New Jersey, we provide help through:

  • prenatal care
  • maternity and health care before and after birth
  • help with budgeting and finding a job
  • childcare for your baby while you work
  • classes on parenting, nutrition, and social skills
  • help with substance use issues and addiction recovery
  • counseling and support for mental health issues
  • case management
  • a lot of love and encouragement throughout your stay!
