Bringing physical and moral structure into the lives of the girls, Life Skills class introduces them to issues surrounding nutrition, pregnancy, childbirth, single parenting, adoption, and budgeting.
Mentorship with Godly ladies invested in you and training to prepare you to be a Godly mother for your baby. Sometimes we just need to know that there is someone we can count on. Our mentors will walk this journey with you, answer questions you may have, and help to prepare you for making a potentially difficult choice at this turning point in your life. They will pray with you and stick with you as you determine God’s will for you and your baby. They will also be there afterwards to encourage you as you enter a new phase of your life.
The Magdalene Home is a real home with bedrooms, bathrooms, and living area. The house parents live in the home with the young moms. Traditional family living includes having meals as a “family,” attending church on Sunday morning, barbecues, fun outings, and more. Each mom also has a chance to grow emotionally, academically and spiritually through carefully planned programs. GED and college preparation courses are available if needed.
In the late afternoon, the young girls participate in Life Skills classes. All residents attend these classes together, and different speakers talk about a variety of subjects and/or provide hands-on activities. Topics will vary and include things such as newborn care, baby proofing, gardening, adoption preparation, etc. and college preparation courses are available if needed.
It is the policy of The Magdalene Home to provide residents with a balanced presentation of all parenting options:
The intent of The Magdalene Home is not to promote one parenting option over another but to present all options
It is important that staff, board members and volunteers refrain from giving any advice about parenting options to residents. It is solely the responsibility and privilege of the House Parents and counselors to counsel with residents and present and discuss the benefits and difficulties involved with each parenting option. Residents will receive counseling from a professional counselor on a weekly basis in order to consider all the parenting options and develop a parenting plan. Residents are free from duress to make their own decisions about placing for adoption or parenting their babies.
Residents who choose the option of placing their child for adoption will be referred to and work exclusively with Chosen One Adoption.
