How many women will live at A Mother’s Hope?
We will be able to house up to eight women and their babies at one time. This number has been determined by researching other programs and recognizing governmental and zoning constraints.
How long will women stay at A Mother’s Hope?
A mother will be permitted to remain at A Mother’s Hope for up to one year after the birth of her baby. A Mother’s Hope will consider each mother’s unique situation in guiding and encouraging them towards self- sufficiency. We recognize that each mother will move towards self-sufficiency at a different pace. Two years after the birth of the baby will be the maximum amount of time a mother can live at A Mother’s Hope.
What type of programs will A Mother’s Hope have?
Our four main areas of programming will focus on shelter, health of mother and baby, life skills, support/spiritual, education, & employment.
How will the programs and home be funded?
Programs will be funded by grants, corporate donors, private donors, and fundraising.
Will mothers who live here be encouraged to place their babies for adoption?
A Mother’s Hope will encourage and support the option of adoption if it is the will of the mother.
Will there be an age limit for the residents?
There will not be an age limit. If a mother is under the age of 18, entrance into the program will require parental consent.
What are the requirements for a pregnant mother to enter the program?
We have identified the following admission criteria:
• Are homeless or at risk of homelessness
• Are willing to follow the rules and structure of AMH
• Are willing to participate in AMH programming
• Are committed to living in a drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free environment
Will residents be permitted to bring other children to live with them at A Mother’s Hope?
Unfortunately, no. If a potential resident can find someone to provide care for her other children, the mother could be considered for entrance into the program. We will allow children to visit.
