The Genesis House is a maternity care facility for pregnant women in need of shelter. Since 1983, hundreds of women have benefitted from the home-like environment designed to foster responsibility and independence. The house accommodates up to 8 women at a time, and residents are encouraged to complete their education, seek employment, and become self-sufficient. They are assisted in making post-delivery plans for themselves and their children, including finding permanent housing.
Residents also benefit from counseling sessions and must attend classes such as smoking cessation, prenatal care, parenting and infant-care skills, and infant and child first aid and CPR.
Caring staff members and counselors are available to provide personal support and direction 24 hours a day.
