Siena House provides a safe haven for women and their babies so they can focus on building the skills they need to live a more stable life. Our residents have access to resources and programs that empower them on their path to self-sufficiency and independence. We are dedicated to helping women find positive solutions for themselves and their children before and after birth.

With respect for each woman's unique circumstances, our staff, volunteers, and outside agencies work together to assist in every facet of a pregnant woman's needs.

  • Help our mothers prepare for the future with an emphasis on life and parenting skills.
  • Encourage counseling for family reconciliation whenever possible.
  • Offer transitional care and support to ensure a positive and healthy experience of independent living for the new family.We provide the following services:
  • Pre and post-natal care
  • Parenting and living skills development
  • Opportunities through referrals for educational and vocational training, and community service involvement
  • Professional individual counseling, as well as group support
  • Weekly case management focusing on housing and financial literacy
