This week we’ve experienced unexpected challenges due to the virus. Your donation comes at a critical moment as calls for housing from homeless and pregnant women have increased daily.
We are committed to serving women who are homeless or house insecure and have been, for some, since childhood. We are committed to our belief that every baby deserves a home and as a result, we are working tirelessly to ensure that none of our babies will go without continuous housing.
If you know of anyone in need of housing, give our office a call at 571-261-2838.
Several days ago, we learned about a young woman who was pregnant, and homeless. She has been sleeping on friends’ couches or in their cars at night.
She was kicked out of the home because she was pregnant. As much as We would like to share that this was a rare story, it’s not. Husbands kick their wives out of the home for wanting to carry a child they believe will cost too much to feed.
Parents, spouses, and boyfriends will abandon their children, wives, and girlfriends because of a pregnancy. We are sharing the plight of many women who need support and housing.
We are working to house, and support abandoned and rejected women.
Our Babies on the Run 5K Race and 1-Mile Fun Run is a time for families to come together to raise funds to house women who are pregnant and homeless. Without adequate housing, families have trouble managing their daily lives. Families without income or enough money to cover vital needs, such as food, health or utilities, are most at risk. When housing needs are met, families can focus more on caring for each other. It’s that time of year again!! Mark your calendars for a fun time for the whole family on June 13th, 2020 for our annual, “Babies on the Run 5K.” We are excited about seeing each of you bright and early at the Michael Pennefather 5k course!!

Ten years ago, Carried To Full Term was birthed from an idea to help pregnant and homeless women. The mission literally began after observing the need to help students who may also be pregnant and in need of support.
Although most people became aware of our mission in 2016, we’ve been around since 2010. The journey has been incredible. The support has been amazing and the women who have walked the halls in the home have been magnificent.
Never in our wildest dream could we have imagined the number of babies and children who would be born into our program and would come to call Carried To Full Term home. Thank you for the support and we look forward to growing together.
The other day, one of the babies born in our home saw a photo of the house and she said, that’s my mommy’s house.
The significance of the statement is profound for the following reasons.
Two years ago her mother was pregnant and homeless.
Two years ago, she didn’t have a home to be born into.
Two years ago, she was born into a community of dedicated women committed to loving her, reading to her, taking her to doctor’s appointments and affirming her mom.
In the past two years, her mother was given the tools and support needed to give birth to a healthy baby girl to help her break cycles of homelessness and crisis.
When women are given the support they need, they make decisions that affirm their heritage, existence and they break negative cycles and work to leave a new hope-filled legacy for future generations.
