The shelter provides a safe, peaceful environment for pregnant women while they await the birth of their children. The shelter also provides counseling and programs that include parenting, childcare, housekeeping and money management. In order to help them mature in character and develop their sense of responsibility, career planning and job training are also available to the mothers-to-be.
