|Morning Star Ministries - Maternity Home||Morning Star supplies housing and related services to teens and young women facing crisis pregnancies. The need for safe housing in a loving, nurturing environment is crucial to someone who is struggling with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. We have found that if given the hope we endeavor to provide, young women are less likely to turn to an abortion as a solution to their crisis. We offer care that begins when the resident arrives and ends when she and her baby have a safe environment in which to return. We not only provide housing, but also help with other needs relating to unplanned pregnancy such as keeping up with education, the coordination of medical care, teaching of life and parenting skills, counseling, etc.
As you consider options and how to address the many issues and how they will change your life, you will speak with caring people who are experienced and can offer options for your consideration.
In addition to housing and basic needs, the services provided at Morningstar include:
- Parenting classes
- Birthing classes
- Various life skills classes
- Assistance with doctor appointments
- Help with obtaining medical assistance
- Enrollment in the local school district
- Earning a GED
- Finding employment
- Researching suitable housing||Montgomery||Morning Star - Montgomery; Lansdale||Morning Star Ministries|
