A Little About Sheltering Grace Ministry
Who we are and what we do
Will you #Be1of5000 Partners to Help us Help Homeless Pregnant Women and infants?
Sheltering Grace Ministry, Ltd. is a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry headquartered in Marietta, GA. The ministry was founded in response to the alarming number of homeless women with unexpected pregnancies in the Atlanta Metro area. Our goal is to interrupt the social and economic patterns that lead to homelessness along with the resulting effects on a woman’s family and on her community.
When a pregnant woman is homeless the baby’s life is at risk. We resolve the initial crisis of homelessness by providing a safe place to live during pregnancy, and providing mothers with the tools they need to improve decision-making, enhance employment options, increase family income, act responsibly as the head of their household, and to develop the self-reliance to progress into permanent independent living.
The typical participant is age 21-45, homeless, unemployed, no income, no transportation, and no support system. She is given a stable and supportive environment to deliver and bond with her newborn. During her stay she receives counseling and a customized life plan including training in life skills, stress management, parenting, prenatal care & childbirth, finance, career building, spiritual development, household management. The goal is to break the generational bond of poverty and dysfunction to create a new legacy for her child.
Since our inception in 2006, Sheltering Grace has been busy building a strong program allowing our participants to grow as women, mothers, and become responsible and productive heads of households.
