The mission of Room at the Inn is to be 'a safe haven and source of hope for pregnant mothers and their children.'
Why You Should Support Them
One of the scariest scenarios that can happen to a young woman or woman of any age is an unplanned pregnancy. It's like one day you're going about life without a worry in the world and then the next you're looking at this positive pregnancy test that has just changed everything. What are going you going to do? What if the father doesn't want to be involved? How are you going to make it?
Thankfully, Room at the Inn is there to help. They provide free residential housing for moms 18 years old and older for up to 24 months with up to 2 children. While living in this residential housing moms are taught about life skills like cooking, healthy living, building their faith, family planning and much more.

They also offer many outreach programs to pregnant women and moms in the community.
