Mercy House is devoted to assisting women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Our home is a place of safety and peace where each woman can focus on her emotional and spiritual growth during this most important time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and developing a positive and healthy environment for her child is the goal of our program.
Our vision is to empower single, pregnant women with hope and help so that no woman will feel compelled to have an abortion due to lack of support.
Our mission is to provide single, pregnant women with a safe nurturing home, pregnancy care, life skills training, and Christian discipleship in order to establish solid foundations for two lives.
The priority of education in preparation for a solid, stable life is strongly encouraged for each Mercy House resident. We provide help with preparation for a general equivalency diploma as well as higher educational goals such as vocational training or college classes. We continually stress the importance of education as a key to a strong, self-supporting future.
Individual and group instruction assist in helping our residents with the skills needed to establish a healthy home. These include parenting instruction; basic infant care and safety; nutrition and cooking; healthy lifestyle training, and any other area identified in each individual resident’s life. The training is formal as well as modeled by all Mercy House staff and volunteers.
Unique, individual needs such as acquiring a driver’s license, resolving a legal issue, or completing unfinished business are prioritized and assisted by our volunteers as part of the service plan we create for each resident.
