The LIGHT House Expands Programs
The LIGHT House, a pro-life agency serving the greater Kansas City metro area since 1985, is expanding services in order to better meet the needs of the community. Beginning July 1, the maternity home program of The LIGHT House will accept expectant mothers (age 12-21) who already have children younger than 18 months. Previously, The LIGHT House was only able to admit expectant mothers who did not have children.
This program expansion will enable The LIGHT House to serve more young women who are facing an untimely pregnancy in addition to the challenges of caring for an infant.
The maternity home provides the support services a young mother needs as she carries and delivers her baby. These include life skills, parenting skills, emotional and medical support and spiritual encouragement. In addition to maternity home services, The LIGHT House also provides an outreach program to mothers and does private adoptions.
For more information on services offered or how to access services, click here or please visit www.lighthousekc.org or call 816-361-2233. The LIGHT House also maintains a 24-hour HOPE Line at 816-91-4434. The LIGHT House is an affiliate of MBCH Children and Family Ministries.
