JMJ Maternity Homes provides homeless or imminently homeless pregnant women; food, shelter, clothing, assistance in accessing medical and mental health services, referrals and transportation for social services, individualized case management, in-home programs, classes, and other support services in a safe, nurturing, home-like environment. Our program facilitates prenatal and post-partum health and promotes the welfare of mother and child. Since 2007 JMJ Maternity Homes has helped over 150 women and their children.
We provide each resident with essential professional Case Management services. Mental health, domestic abuse/sexual assault, and substance abuse assessments are included in all initial placement interviews, and referrals are made when appropriate. On a case-by-case basis, we accept pregnant mothers with additional young children. We work with social service agencies to facilitate the reunification, when appropriate, of mothers with their children who may be temporarily in the custody of a foster family. Many mothers have been successfully reunited with their children. Fathers may be involved if conducive to the welfare of the mother and child.
