Each year, thousands of U.S. youth run away from home, are asked to leave their homes or become homeless. Homeless youth are at particularly high risk for teen pregnancy; research indicates as many as 20% of homeless young women become pregnant. These teens lack financial resources and adequate health care, resulting in increased risk for low–birth-weight babies and high infant mortality.
Labor of Love Maternity Home seeks to provide a village of love and support for these vulnerable young women; not just a place to stay, but a place to heal. We provide a comprehensive, trauma-informed program that gives solid guidance and a healthy transition on their road to self-sufficiency.
Labor of Love provides a loving home, case management, therapy, prenatal and parenting classes, and more, to homeless pregnant teens and young women who have nowhere else to turn.
