For Girls Facing an Unplanned Pregnancy Your Support Changes Everything
Redeeming Hearts was founded to provide a live-in program to educate and support young women facing an unplanned pregnancy within our local community. While there are limited options available through public services, many pregnant girls find themselves homeless or living in dangerous situations. For some pregnant girls a live-in program is the only way they can adequately care for themselves and their unborn babies’ health leading up to and after the birth of their child.
It is our mission to help these young mothers overcome the statistics that show unplanned teen pregnancies resulting in adverse life outcomes for both mother and child. On average pregnant teens are less likely to complete high school, have higher poverty rates, and are more likely to utilize public assistance such as welfare and food stamps to ensure their survival. It has also been found that children of teen mothers are more likely to have an unhealthy diet & lifestyle, are more likely to suffer abuse, and be placed in foster care causing further strain on our local social services.
It is our hope that with your help we can bridge the gap and make a notable difference in the lives of the teens and children we assist, so that they can have the opportunity to flourish.
How do we help?
Redeeming Hearts offers:
A fully sponsored live-in program
Health and nutrition education
Adoption counseling & assistance (for those who choose this option)*
Life skills: cooking, cleaning, personal care etc.
Continued education/computer skills
Child birth classes
Spiritual growth classes
A trained live-in house mother will also provide guidance
*Offering a child up for adoption can be a complicated and emotional process for the mother and adopting family. Redeeming hearts partners with licensed adoption agencies that will provide legal and emotional support for the mother. This is a difficult decision, so after the birth of the baby the mother will receive additional support, and counseling at Redeeming Hearts live-in facility.
