Mary Weslin Homes is a safe haven for pregnant, unwed moms who need a place to stay while learning the skills they need to make a better life for themselves and their babies.
An unplanned pregnancy is a scary prospect when facing it alone, especially for a young woman without the means of support for herself and her baby. But she is making the right decision by choosing life for her baby! Whether she chooses to keep her baby or to place him or her for adoption, we can help her get through this trying time in her life and guide her on her way towards independence.
Our home in Council Bluffs, Iowa, provides a safe haven for pregnant mothers in a Christian family atmosphere. It is located on a small, quiet acreage where women can live free of charge in a family setting during their pregnancy while we help them learn the skills they will need to succeed when they are on their own again. While they live with us, we provide for their basic needs, including food, shelter, counseling, spiritual guidance, and other support. We help our mothers receive life skills training and counseling, get the medical care they need, finish high school or go to college, work towards their career goals, and follow the dreams they have for their lives. While living with us, mothers are key members of our family, and help with household tasks and cooking, while having time for reflection and meditation.
