"The work of maternity homes has been around for a long time, but the challenges of women now are quite complicated - involving addiction, abuse, trauma, and lack of support. In order to be more effective in our work, we need to learn from one another."

Mary Peterson, Heartbeat, Housing Specialist

Join Us Now

Life-affirming maternity homes across the United States are invited to join the National Maternity Housing Coalition. Being unified in our common work allows us to strengthen programs and better communicate the important role that housing programs play in supporting pregnant women.

Our Mission

The mission of the National Maternity Housing Coalition is to inspire excellence among maternity housing providers and articulate a collective voice to advance the culture of life and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This will be done by providing training and tools, facilitating an exchange of knowledge and experience, and fostering fellowship among members.

"Maternity housing has been a vital life-affirming service. Heartbeat is excited to serve the heroic champions, through NMHC, in strengthening and deepening the work."

Peggy Hartshorn, Chairman of the Board - Heartbeat International
