Programs: The MMH Adoption Services program provides professional guidance and counseling throughout the adoption process. Birth mothers receive adoption education, professional counseling and emotional support and financial assistance with their maternity related expenses. The Maternity Center is located on campus and provides a safe residence for birth mothers if needed during the pregnancy. Birth mothers also receive up to two years of post-adoption counseling, at no cost for them. The Adoption Services program assists families wanting to build their family through adoption. We offer domestic infant, international, and older child adoption services. The MMH Adoption Resource Center provides post adoption services for birth parents, adoptees, and families. Southwest Center for Higher Independence provides a transitional education including life skills and vocational training to young adults who are 18 years and older and who are challenged with a qualifying disability and those who are deaf.

Mission:

Through professional guidance and compassionate support, teens and young women facing unplanned pregnancies and families considering adoption make mutually beneficial decisions.

 

Through transitional education including life skills and vocational training, young adults with disabilities and those who are deaf develop confidence and competence to reach their personal level of independent living.

Results:
Since 1890’s adoption services has been our signature service. Since 1947 we have placed over 5700 babies in loving families.  Since 1974, thousands of young adults with disabilities have received life skills and/or vocational training towards personal independence.
