Program Description:

Ruth Harbor is a home away from home for many young women who become pregnant. Pregnancy presents many challenges, so at Ruth Harbor you’ll find relief from many of life’s pressures while you work through the difficulties presented by pregnancy. Ruth Harbor provides security and safety in a loving, family-style home. Housing, food, and healthcare are provided at no charge, giving you the support you need to work and save for your future or pursue educational and career opportunities.
While at Ruth Harbor, you’ll receive excellent prenatal care and nutritional meals that are essential to your health and the health of your baby.

You’ll also receive weekly Christ-centered counseling and information on both parenting and adoption options. Your family and the father of your baby may be included in counseling, when appropriate.

Weekly classes will provide information to help you prepare for the future for you and your baby. The classes provided during your stay will include prenatal care and nutrition, childbirth, parenting, adoption, decision making, financial planning and budgeting, and building healthy relationships.

To help you be successful in the future, you’ll learn household management skills, employment skills, and personal goal setting. You’ll be included in family activities such as cookouts, games, family outings and church.
