Why Hannah House?

Maternity Home:

The Hannah House Maternity Home is a temporary living arrangement for you and your child until the child is 6 months old.  The house has 4 bedrooms for residents.  Each room holds two mothers and two babies once the baby is born.  The rooms are quite large.  The Maternity Home is staffed 24/7, with an overnight Residential Assistant present on the grounds for emergencies.

 

Unplanned Pregnancy Decision Support

If you are considering parenting, we offer a pregnancy support program, referrals, resources and holistic support. If you are considering adoption, we can provide information on the many adoption arrangements and referrals to particular organizations.

We want you to feel confident and comfortable with your decision.

Your stay at Hannah House is a chance for you to achieve something more. Our case management is geared toward helping you be able to care for yourself and your child when your time at Hannah House closes. We will help you get your G.E.D. or High School diploma, we will help you start college, we will get you connected in your community, or we will help you find gainful employment.
