Helping new families thrive
Teen pregnancy can trap homeless and low-income mothers and their children in poverty, domestic violence and lack of education. That’s why Alexandria’s House provides a safe, supportive and nurturing home for expectant and new teen mothers.
Alexandria’s House is a loving licensed group maternity home where young women (ages 16-20) get the support and guidance they need to take the first steps to becoming powerful mothers. These young mothers learn to create a warm and loving home atmosphere and provide proper care for their babies.
Alexandria’s House can welcome up to five mothers and their babies at a time into a charming home in historic Browne’s Addition. Built in 1901, the building has seven furnished bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, as well as a spacious kitchen and dining area, shared living and laundry rooms, space for meetings and classes and a beautiful yard for little feet to explore.
Infants get a healthy start with prenatal and well-baby care. Moms get vital parenting training, gather essential skills for living successfully on their own and are empowered to continue their progress in treatment, education and employment. Public health nurses, Circle of Security parenting specialists and other community partners help us provide the emotional, psychological and physical support systems that our moms and babies need. We strive to end generational cycles of poverty, child abuse and neglect.
To help the young women year-round, please consider purchasing an item off of our Amazon Wishlist . Your gift purchase will be shipped to the program manager of Alexandria’s House.
