If you are pregnant and reading this, we want you to know you are not alone! We have already prayed for you and have purposefully established Heart of Hope with you in mind. We know right now you are uncertain of what your future looks like. Heart of Hope – A Sanctuary for Women is a safe place, away from the confusion, chaos and pressures that may be surrounding you, where you can focus on the most important decision of your young life; being a parent. While living at Heart of Hope you will receive private medical care as well as professional counseling. This will make a significant difference in your own emotional and physical wellbeing as well as your unborn child's.

Since 2005, Heart of Hope has made careful and deliberate steps towards building a plan that focuses on meeting every one of your needs during this time of your life. Just because you are pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to drop out of school for the remainder of the year. Heart of Hope has a computer lab on the property where our residents go to school Monday through Friday. If you did not finish high school, you will work to obtain a GED. Education is the foundation to build your independent life upon, and we are committed to help you succeed in this area in your life.

Along with continuing your education, we have established other important classes to prepare you for parenthood and independent living. You will attend classes on childbirth and parenting, prenatal and nutrition, boundaries, and other life skills such as budgeting, meal planning and cooking, and job/employment skills.

One of the benefits of living in a maternity home is you have other young women experiencing much of the same issues as you. Living at Heart of Hope will be a major decision for you. You must be willing and ready to make positive changes in your life, not only for your sake, but for the sake of your child.   Please go to our FAQ for answers to some more common questions.

If you have already decided Heart of Hope is right for you, please fill out the Initial Contact Form and email or mail back the Initial Assessment to counselor@heartofhopeministry.com and we will contact you!

We are praying for you!
