A Home for Expecting Mothers

Children are a heritage from the Lord; offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them. Psalms 127: 3-5

Mother and Baby


Sometimes expecting a child can be overwhelming, especially if a mother is not getting the support or help she needs. We believe every mother deserves to give birth with dignity and respect. Martha's House of Hope provides a loving home in a family-style environment for pregnant women. Our focus is on encouraging women to become self-sufficient, and to help develop the mother spiritually, emotionally and intellectually throughout pregnancy and into early motherhood. It is our mission to bring the love of Christ and the joy of experiencing that love to all women who come here.


So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

Genesis 1:27
