Morning Star Maternity Home is a Christian non-profit Crisis Pregnancy Home. It is operated by Morning Star Ministries of the North Penn Area, Inc., offering a positive alternative to abortion.
What We Do
Morning Star supplies housing and related services to teens and young women facing crisis pregnancies. The need for safe housing in a loving, nurturing environment is crucial to someone who is struggling with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. We have found that if given the hope we endeavor to provide, young women are less likely to turn to an abortion as a solution to their crisis.
We offer care that begins when the resident arrives and ends when she and her baby have a safe environment in which to return.
We not only provide housing, but also help with other needs relating to unplanned pregnancy such as keeping up with education, the coordination of medical care, teaching of life and parenting skills, counseling, etc.
The ministry is staffed by caring individuals who are advised by a knowledgeable and considerate board of directors. Staff positions currently include:
Director…oversees the daily operation of the ministry, supports the houseparent(s) and coordinates the volunteer efforts necessary for the program’s success.
Fundraiser…coordinates the various details involved with fundraising events which finance the ministry.
Houseparent(s)…a mature husband/wife team or a single mature woman responsible for all areas of parenting, nurturing and modeling a healthy family lifestyle for the pregnant young women in the program.
