The Nest Maternity Home
The Nest is a temporary haven for young women facing an unplanned pregnancy. During your time here, you will find a pause from many of life's pressures while you walk through life's challenges. The Nest provides security and safety in a loving, family-run home. Housing, food and assistance is provided so that you are able to focus on preparing for your future.
While at The Nest you will receive housing, prenatal care, nutritious meals, education opportunities and also learn new skills that will prepare you for your future. You will receive weekly Christ-centered counseling, and information about your options (both parenting and adoption). Your family and the father of your baby may be included in counseling when appropriate.
Weekly classes during your stay at the The Nest will include: prenatal care, nutrition, parenting, adoption, decision making, financial planning, budgeting, boundaries, completing a Strength Finder assessment, Temperament Profiles, sexual integrity and how to build healthy relationships.
To be able to make the most of your stay at The Nest, we will develop a Care Plan for your unique situation. Through this Care Plan you will learn different skills like goal setting, employment skills and basic life skills. You will also be included in family activities such as family outings, church, games and special celebrations.
