We love to stand behind and with intentional people who have the heart loving others. It truly is a calling to go forth and put yourself last to help those who need to be put first. Haven is one of those projects that is much needed in our community and we’re so honored to feature them on our blog!
Haven is a new maternity home project of The Common Thread Community designed to offer young women facing an unintended pregnancy the needed emotional or practical support to carry the pregnancy and to thrive as a parent during the child’s early infancy stages. The Haven provides a seven-month to one-year residential program for women who may not have access to other assistance, and is strategically planted among a loving and dedicated community that intentionally serves the spiritual and practical needs of vulnerable women and children. The heartbeat of The Haven is to raise up mothers and to help build secure, healthy and vibrant families.
Haven is still fresh and new, and like any new organization- it takes a bit to move forward with everything you need. They are currently looking for that perfect safe haven home, but they are still walking with moms in inner-city Birmingham (i.e. providing them with clothes, financial assistance, council, food etc.) but being able to provide a stable, safe home for moms and their children is their primary goal.
If anybody is interested in communicating with Haven, you can reach them at: email@example.com You can also, if you feel led to help, give online HERE. We will give more information closer to time, but there will be a fundraiser for Haven in the spring! Be sure to follow on social media to stay tuned!
What a mission this organization carries! It truly is so honoring to know our city has this. Thank you Erica for letting us share your mission and heart!
Yours in style,
