Due to the recent changes in legislation and licensing, effective September 1, 2019, we are no longer housing young girls who are pregnant. As much as we have loved helping each and every individual girl get through the trying time in her life that she was facing in her unplanned pregnancy, our long term goal has always been to find a way to prevent them from ever finding themselves in that situation. We are, therefore, transitioning our focus to prevention and awareness/education of childhood sexual abuse where we feel we can have a much greater impact.
The intent of The Magdalene Home is not to promote one parenting option over another but to present all options. We offer Adoption counseling to provide residents with a balanced presentation of all parenting options. Click above to learn more.
