Our Vision: A nurturing community for those facing crisis pregnancies.

We are committed to excellence in providing opp ortunities for the young women to enhance their well - being and to live to their fullest potential through in - house programs, access to community support programs and education.
Guiding Principles: 1. We believe that from fertilisation to natural death, each human being is unique and precious and has a fundamental right to life. 2. We believe that, in providing an accepting and supporting environment, we will help young women make life - affirming decisions for themselves and their children. 3. We believe in promot ing sexual abstinence outside marriage. 4. We believe in showing the love of Jesus through service to all, regardless of sex, religion, culture, national origin or personality. 5. We believe in being inclusive of the father and extended family, whenever the si tuation allows, benefiting the young mother and her child. 6. We believe in involving the community to provide acceptance and support to all families. Michael House, in fulfilling it s Mission Statement, always supports women who have chosen childbirth. The services are built upon the belief that life begins at conception.
