The mission of The Sparrow’s Nest Maternity Home is to provide a Christ centered shelter and to educate homeless, pregnant and parenting young women by providing a wide range of services that empower them to make positive and healthy life decisions for themselves and their babies.
The Sparrow’s Nest Maternity Home is a safe place for girls 19 years and younger to come and rest during their pregnancy. It will be a calm refuge where they can find a second, third, or fourth chance to figure things out. It will be a warm and loving home where young teen mothers can be take care of while they learn to take care of their baby.
We offer long term housing to teen mothers. We are licensed for 8 children under the age of 19. At any point time this might look like 4 moms and 4 babies, 6 moms and 2 babies etc. An expectant or parenting teen moms can expect to have all her basic needs such as clothing, food, shelter, transportation, and education through high school to be provided for. We have two sets of houseparents who alternately live at The Nest 24/7. Volunteers provide programming such as childcare/parenting, financial literacy, bible study, sexual integrity, healthy relationships, healthy lifestyles, job skills, and life skills.
Case management is provided to ensure the proper medical, emotional, physical, and most importantly, the spiritual needs of the young women living at The Nest are taken care of.
We’ll be a great beginning to a rough start.
