When facing an unexpected pregnancy, there are many fears and challenges that can seem overwhelming. Our staff and programs help women deal with these challenges. Here are some of the most common concerns we have heard over the years by young women who did not expect their pregnancy:
Teenagers and women with children under the age of five are welcome regardless of their ethnicity, marital status, religious beliefs or socio-economic status.
Women receive housing, counseling, medical care, and emotional and spiritual support at no cost to them. Through workshops, they learn how to parent. Through prayer, they understand the love that Jesus Christ has for them and they have the right to be loved!
Mater Filius focuses on both the unborn baby and the mother. We embrace women and offer them safety and peace inside our home. A stable and nurturing environment is essential to a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth, and a healthy, new parent.
In our own way, our home offers a dynamic and vibrant family life. Each member of the house, regardless of their role, is changed profoundly by the experience. In this way, Mater Filius not only provides for the physical and emotional needs of the pregnant women who are our guests, but also encourages the growth of the donors, volunteers, and staff.
