WHAT HAPPENS AT A MOTHER'S HOPE
Love Abounds. Hope Rises. Lives are Forever Changed.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.~1 Corinthians 13: 13
Faith Read More
Faith plays an enormous role at A Mother's Hope! We have great faith in God and His immeasurable love for every woman. We have faith in every woman that she can find her strength and identity in Christ which ultimately propels her to reach her greatest potential.
For our residents, hope is more than a feeling of optimism for the future. It is our hope that when life gets difficult, they will not return to their previous ways of coping and managing life. They will have learned the necessary skills and tools to manage difficult situations positively. Furthermore, they will have received therapy to address trauma and encourage family stability.
Our program is designed to provide opportunities for our residents to create safe, stable, and nurturing environments for themselves and their children as they move towards self-sufficiency.
Our first priority at A Mother's Hope is that every woman who walks through our doors feels loved and valued no matter what. We believe that when women are genuinely loved they find the freedom to be who God created them to be. When this happens, women realize their value and make life changes in line with their purpose. They come to love themselves and others in an entirely new way.
Protecting LifeRead More
Many times, pregnant women experiencing homelessness have nowhere to turn. These women haven chosen life for their babies, but are often scared, alone, and desperately needing to be loved. We are very sensitive to the unique needs of every woman we serve. We make it a priority to protect the life of each woman and each baby no matter what phase of life they are in. A Mother's Hope advocates for and attends to the medical and emotional needs of woman and their babies at all times.
Our Approach in ActionRead More
Being motivated by love, we approach every encounter as an opportunity to ignite something significant in the women we serve! Because our residents are with us 24 hours a day, we are in a gifted position to encourage and activate real change that makes way for solid, stable futures.
