Royal Home Ministries offers counseling and education opportunities for teen pregnant mothers in a nurturing, protected atmosphere. The Royal Home is committed to serving teen mothers and their babies during their time of crisis. Our maternity and mothers and babies program is a new beginning for both.
Students are mentored and taught like skill classes on a regular basis by volunteers from the Zeta Membership Program, Sacred Heart Catholic Women’s Group, and MOPs. Numerous students have graduated from HS, Attended Community College, and held down paying jobs enabling them to save a minimum of 50% of their income.
Classes are offered on a regular basis. These include, but are not limited to, childbirth, newborn basics, and nutrition. Depending on the client’s choice, staff work with them to develop a parenting or an adoption plan. All clients participate in childbirth classes taught by a registered nurse certified to teach childbirth classesAll clients will receive life skills training. Life Skills include, but are not limited to housekeeping, nutritional menu, planning, money management, personal hygiene/appearance, safety skills, and preparation for independent living.
All young ladies are seen by a pregnancy social worker throughout the duration of their stay at our maternity home. The social worker presents choices for either an adoption plan or parenting. Upon choosing a plan, the worker assists the client in setting goals for achieving the plan chosen. Professional counseling services are also made available to our clients to assist in goal setting and planning for their future.
All clients are required to be enrolled in school, working, or serving in a volunteer capacity that develops vocational skills. Clients in high school have the opportunity to attend Falcon Christian Academy, a private academy located on the campus of Falcon Children’s Home or the local public school.
