Hannah’s House in Lansing goes far beyond providing homeless, expectant mothers with food and shelter. We provide them an opportunity to gain the emotional, physical, and spiritual strength to raise children in a loving, supportive, and positive way, or to follow an adoption plan if they so choose. Women live free of charge at Hannah’s House through pregnancy and up to six months following the birth of their baby. They leave with a promising new life ahead of them. The goal is that every mother who leaves Hannah’s House has a home, as well as the parenting and life skills necessary to be a contributing member of the community.
Any pregnant woman over the age of 18 may apply for admission to the program. We offer shelter, baby items, and guidance with parenting and living skills. Each mother is required to attend a Christian church service of her choice on Sunday morning, a weekly Bible study, perform chores, observe curfews, sign in and out, and either work, go to school, or serve as a volunteer no less than 25 hours per week up until 2 weeks before delivery, and she must resume activities 2-4 weeks after her child is born.
