HANNAHS HOUSE

Rating: 4.8 stars   5 reviews

Issues: Children & Youth, Homeless & Housing

Location: PO Box 27595 Lansing MI 48909 USA

Mission: We are a Christ-centered haven offering hope and help to homeless, indigent women who are in crisis pregnancies and/or who are caring for young children. The love of Christ is offered through the provision of transitional shelter, food, clothing, guidance, opportunities for spiritual growth, access to various support services, and education in parenting and life skills.
Programs: While at Hannah's House, expectant mothers in crisis pregnancies are provided with many essential services needed to become healthy, successful parents. Residents experience love and acceptance, regain and learn trust and acceptance of others, develop a community support system, and model a Christian lifestyle. From basic needs and housing to education and spiritual development, we become their mentors through pregnancy up to nine months after the birth of their child and in many cases beyond that.

I was in a postion where I had to do community service for an assistance program. At first I was not exactly excited about having todo it when I felt like I already had enough on my plate. After the first day at Hannah's House I couldn't wait to go back. I enjoyed spending time with the irls and getting to know their stories. I felt like I was having a positive impact on their lives by being able to share my experiences with them as well. When I needed help with diapers for my children I was able to access their services and get get help too. It is an amazing place, doing amazing things!

When women are in a tough spot, pregnant and no where to go...that's where Hannah's House comes in. This is a small organization but a huge help to the women and their babies. It is a place where they find the care and counsel that they need. I know a young lady who works for this organization and she was once a client as well. She is an amazing testimony of what can happen when a young women is given a chance-- with a safe place to stay, food and care...and a lot of love. It would be wonderful for this ministry to grow to be able to accept more women and children in need.

Hannah's House is a safe, loving, and Christian home for pregnant women. They can come during their pregnancy and stay up until 9 months after the baby is born. We can accomadate 3 women and their babies. The women will have a chance to learn life skills, parenting skills, budgeting, nutrition and study the Bible. The home is lovely, and is on a bus line and near a Junior College. The women are expected to continue their education, work or volunteer. No fee is charged to the women. We are supported by individual donations, grants, fundraisers and Churches.

Hannah's House provides a vital service to the Greater Lansing area as it is the only homeless shelter serving women and their babies. Women are given the opportunity to improve their educational and professional lives under the security of a loving home for themselves and their babies.

Seeing many lives changed as women are able to escape from their circumstances and become effective mothers and productive members of our community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the number of women and babies served. Unfortunately, the home is small and only a limited number can be served at one time. The need is much greater to serve additional residents in our community.

Hannah's House is a place where staff genuinely care about helping people in need. They go above and beyond the job description to help the ladies and babies residing in this home. True, life-changing help and guidance is made available to the residents.

get a bigger house so they can serve more women and babies
