Safe Haven

Pregnancy Homes

Every woman has the right to choose life for her unborn child.

S.H.E. Cares does not merely want to be a voice for the unborn but be pro-actively involved in providing positive alternatives to both legal and illegal abortion.

Disclaimer: As different homes across the country become available this program can be subject to change. Each home will be an individual entity functioning under the oversight of SHE Cares.
Our core values will remain non-negotiable.
Each prospective resident will be screened before entering the program and a home.
And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Jesus Christ in Mat 18:5-6; 10

Requirements

We want to welcome each woman in need during her pregnancy. Our expectations are simple but we require full participation with the program in order to gain the most from your time with us. We also need to strictly adhere to guidlines to make it as productive also for the other residents in the home.

Full Cooperation

We are here to help and walk with you each step of the way. Each resident will need to commit themselves to fully participate and cooperate with the staff, and the program of the house.

We need to take into consideration all other residents' well being and progress.

Be Pregnant

Not every resident will be pregnant during the full duration of their stay but you must stay pregnant and have your baby in order for us to accommodate you.

There will be a pre-determined time where you can stay with us after the birth of your baby if you wish to mother your child.
