The Mountain House Maternity Home officially opened its doors on March 1, 2018 and we at So Big are boldly stepping out to offer Hope to pregnant women in need. The idea for So Big began in 2008 when I heard a whisper from God that changed my life. While serving as director for the Women’s Health Clinic at the St Vincent Primary Care Center in Indianapolis, I supervised and taught resident physicians as they cared for pregnant women that were often in desperate situations. Some women were living out of their cars, some needed more food, while others sat crying in the exam room, thinking abortion was their only option. During this time, God pressed it into my heart that every life matters and He laid out a picture of a home where a pregnant woman could find shelter, food and most of all love.
The journey over the last 12 years has been eventful: Full of surprises, joy and some heartache. Five years ago, God in His infinite wisdom, led us to a beautiful, 100 year old house in Whitestown, Indiana, to start our first home. Now that we have opened The Mountain House, we are grateful to be a part of the Boone County community. We are excited to be joining in the work that the other organizations are doing here in Indiana as we help to meet the needs of pregnant women and their children.
At the Mountain House Maternity home , we provide a home for up to four pregnant women and their families. While living at the house, these women have opportunities to acquire life skills, further their education and employment, and learn more about Jesus. New Hope Christian Church, the owner of the property, has generously agreed to let us use this house and we have transformed it into a place that is safe for the women and children that we serve.
Assisting these families as they develop a better tomorrow for themselves is So Big. We can’t do it alone. We need your help. We estimate that it will cost a bare minimum of $220,000 annually to care for the women and children and sustain the operations of the maternity home. Will you please consider donating to So Big to further our mission? We thank you in advance for your support!
