Several Source Shelters is more than a shelter for pregnant women. It is a place where these needy women can find a home and a “family” who cares about them and helps them to succeed in life. They learn life skills, attend Bible study and chastity classes, and are encouraged and supported to continue their education so that they can provide their child and themselves.

The support continues after the mothers have left our homes. Through Several Sources’ Special Families program, those families in need receive food gift certificates on a regular basis, medical and school supplies, gifts at Christmas and other support to help them get through difficult economic times.

Since 1981, Several Sources has helped over 20,000 women. Over 200 pregnant women call their National Hotline every month seeking assistance. Several Sources provides extensive counseling and information for pregnant women seeking information on the resources available to them.

Many of the women whom Several Sources serves are victims of violence or abuse, while others have been abandoned by their families. All of them need a place to stay so they can give life to their unborn child. Several Sources exists to offer a hand in friendship and love at a time when these women are most in need.
