About

20 Years Of Being There For You

Our goal is to provide hope for lives that are hurting and broken and to let them know that life can look different. It does not have to be as challenging as it is right now. We strive to share our hope for a better future for them and their babies.

The home is valuable because it is a HOME. It is not a rehab clinic or treatment facility. We get to treat the women as people and valuable lives. We help them to achieve their goals. This home is a safe place for them. They begin to make healthy choices and create healthy relationships. Many of our residents have no family or support system. They deal with issues of abandonment. They may have been raised in the foster care system.

We exist to provide a safe and nurturing environment that supports emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual growth:

  • To share, teach and model a growing, personal relationship with Christ
  • To demonstrate Christ’s love to pregnant and unwed young women
  • To encourage life and educate young women so they can make an informed decision between adoption and parenting
  • To provide practical training for life skills, Biblical parenting skills, nutrition, vocational and home life opportunities
  • To equip young women to become godly women in their families and communities through counseling and discipleship and the study of God’s Word

History

1990s

In the mid 1990’s, Carol Beresford, a local pastor’s wife, attended a conference in Virginia and toured a maternity home. Seeing such a place inspired her to share a ministry opportunity with her women’s prayer group and church. She envisioned such a home in this area where single, pregnant, young women who had limited support and resources could stay and choose life for their babies.

1998

In 1998, she began to solicit help from individuals, churches, businesses and the community to fulfill the call God had given her.

2001

Hannah’s home opened in 2001, debt-free and completely furnished.

2012

The Home was temporarily closed from late 2012 due to the downturn in the economy.

2014

Through the efforts of many donors sacrificially giving of their finances and resources, and a host of volunteers generously giving the gift of their time, the Home announced a New Beginning and reopened in Fall 2014.

2016

We took a huge leap of faith and transitioned to a home where the women were now able to return with their babies which was prevented under our licensing. We dropped that license which was only permitted by the state due to the fact that we are solely supported by private donations. We restructured our staff, hiring a live-in Executive Director and now function with a Mentoring staff. We no longer utilize the “house-parent” model. We welcomed our first baby back to the home in July of 2016!
