The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
LifeHouse is a Christ-centered ministry ensuring life for unborn children by providing opportunities for housing, help, and hope for young women during their pregnancies and beyond.
LifeHouse changes and saves lives, two at a time. Residents arrive at LifeHouse via crisis pregnancy centers, churches, school guidance counselors, family members, or an internet search. Regardless of how God brings them to LifeHouse, each woman is greeted by Christian house parents who care for their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being until she delivers her baby or secures alternate living arrangements.
LifeHouse remains only one of two maternity home's in a 14-county area open to minors as young as 12 years old. All residents benefit from cost-free lodging, meals, pre-natal care, life skills training, counseling, access to work/school, and God's overwhelming love. Life-affirming and life-changing, the ministry marvels at Godʼs faithfulness to an original prayer that, to date, has blessed more than 600 women -- and their unborn children -- with housing, healing and, most of all, hope.
