What is St. Clare’s Home?

St. Clare’s Home will give women experiencing a crisis pregnancy a comfortable and caring environment where they will bond with their babies, while also offering an educational program and support system that will empower them in their journey to independent living. Although crisis pregnancy centers are doing great work, there are few safety nets in place for pregnant women who find themselves without a place to live.

While living in the Home, residents will be offered life and parenting skills classes, and have the opportunity to further their education at either a high school or college level. At the conclusion of their stay at St. Clare’s Home, residents will be equipped with the skills needed to care for themselves and for their children. By fulfilling their physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs, it is hoped to decrease the women’s prenatal stress, allowing them to deliver healthy babies. Additionally, they will acquire the skills and confidence needed to adequately care for their children and manage households of their own.

The Home will consist of 8 residential suites, 24 hour care and supervision, a learning center with computer access, a full service kitchen and large dining room, an outdoor playground, a chapel and a large family room. St. Clare’s will be a place – a Home – for women to get the hand up needed to support themselves and their child or children.

Once built, women of all races, religions, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply for residence at St. Clare’s Home regardless of what city or state they currently live. An admissions board will review each application to determine entrance into the home.
