Martha's House of Hope offers a variety of programs and services to serve the physical, spiritual, financial and emotional needs of our expecting mothers.
In addition to providing a safe environment for both mother and child, Martha's House of Hope assists residents with acquiring basic needs both before and after pregnancy. Mothers will be assisted with scheduling both pre and postpartum medical care. Support for newborn nutrition will be provided, as well as access to a lactation consultant.
GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES
Sometimes expecting a child can be overwhelming, especially if a mother is not getting the support or help she needs from family. Expecting mothers will be matched with a mentor Mom to provide guidance and support on their journeys to motherhood.
Thanks to various donors and supporters of Martha's House of Hope, we are pleased to offer transportation services to our residents. These will be determined on a case by case basis, varying due to differing needs of each expecting and new mother.
