House of Grace Ministries dba Mom’s Place Maternity is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. Established in 2007 as Avonlea Acres. Our goal is to develop relationships with every mother and child that lasts a lifetime. We operate and maintain a maternity home in which every mom has her own bedroom, where she and her children can comfortably and proudly call home. Mom's Place Maternity is a safe place where mothers work together to better themselves and the lives of their children, as they share common and individual goals for self growth and renewal.
We help Women 18 to 28 years of age who are pregnant and/or who have young children 3 years of age or younger, who are in need of food, shelter, and practical support. We have an intensive screening process to determine if a woman is ready for the Mom’s Place Maternity Program. Residents must have a significant period of sobriety and must not be suffering from any debilitating mental illness. Our individualized programs are designed around the personal goals, needs, wants, and desires of each resident. We guide mothers through parenting, education, career, and everyday challenges, with emphasis on hard work to make a future for themselves and their children. We accept mothers based on their need and their motivation to set and achieve goals that benefit their family unit.
Since we serve mothers who are without housing and are usually unemployed with very few resources, we have a great many costs. Monetary donations are most helpful. Over 90% of funds raised goes directly into our program. Become a community partner by volunteering, donating monies, or joining us at our events.
