Our Mission of Hope

Meeting Basic Needs First

Journey of Hope is a maternity home for women in crisis situations.  We build community with sisters and brothers in Christ enabling women to live into their God-given purpose and to obtain for themselves:

  • a stable home,

  • a healthy lifestyle,

  • a higher education,

  • a career,

  • a budget,

  • and a spiritual life closer to God.

Expectant mothers that are experiencing homelessness have long stemming trauma that can only be addressed once their basic needs are first met.

From the onset, Journey of Hope intends to meet women where they are and provide them with shelter, clothing, and food.
