Support for Unplanned Pregnancy

Having a baby can be stressful, even in the best of circumstances. An untimely pregnancy affects the individual in every aspect of life.

On-Campus Group Living

If you need a place to live during your pregnancy, our Pregnancy Cottages are safe environments to empower you to maintain a healthy pregnancy and deliver a healthy baby. In this safe, nurturing environment, you will receive the skills, support and information necessary to make good decisions for you and your child. You may also apply for you and your child to return to the cottage after delivery.

The Pregnancy Services group living ministry also includes a home in Kansas City operated by The LIGHT House - an affiliate of MBCH Children and Family Ministries.
