About Annunciation Maternity Home
What We DoWe provide housing and related services to young mothers facing an unplanned pregnancy.
MissionTo provide young women in crisis pregnancies, and their children, with housing, educational opportunities, and access to help services to empower them in their journey towards independence.
CharismTo live and exemplify the charism of the Annunciation of Mary depicted in the Gospel of Luke for pregnant women:
- By teaching that they are blessed and loved by God
- By showing God's unconditional love for them by providing housing, educational and enrichment opportunities
- By teaching faith in God's will and plan for their lives.
Our services are offered without regard to religious belief, and we make no religious demands on those who come to us for help.
Deacon Michael and Christie Aaronson founded Annunciation Maternity Home in 1999 to follow an inspirational calling to provide an essential service needed in their community. God quietly instilled the responsibility in their hearts that "we are our brother's keeper,” and that pregnant and parenting young women, and their children, deserve a place that will support them during their pregnancy and beyond, and help them find a new beginning. They wanted to commit not just with words, but also in action designed to give each mother the assistance needed to be able to provide for herself her baby long-term. Thus, Annunciation Maternity Home was created.
