The holidays are season where the comforts of home mean more than ever, but not everyone has a place to call home.
This holiday season, up to 47,520 pregnant women and their children are facing the harsh reality of homelessness.
Your generosity has the incredible power to light up a home, warm a heart, and provide hope to pregnant women who not only deserve but also desire a brighter and more stable future. Make a difference with us this Giving Tuesday – and help us turn 'no place to call home' into 'the perfect place to call home.'
As many as 47,520 pregnant women are homeless on any given night in the United States.
Since 2012, we've been on a mission to change the statistic.
In 2023 alone, we've housed 16 women and provided them with a safe and supportive place to stay. But, it goes beyond four walls and a roof, we assist them in securing employment, furthering their education, attending classes, and prioritizing their maternal health. By addressing these fundamental aspects of their lives, we aim to equip these women with the tools and opportunities necessary to break free from the cycle of homelessness, build successful futures, and become confident, self-sufficient mothers.
By offering a safe and supportive environment, Carried To Full Term has become a sanctuary where these women can rebuild their lives, nurture their pregnancies, and cultivate a strong foundation for a brighter future. The willingness of these women to travel such distances underscores the transformative impact that Carried To Full Term has had in providing not just housing, but also a sense of belonging, stability, and renewed hope.
These 173 calls since 2022 serve as a reminder of the pressing issue of homelessness and the vital role that our organization plays in addressing it. Each call represents a unique story, a person or family desperately seeking stability and a safe place to call home. Behind these numbers are individuals who have faced adversity, experienced displacement, and longed for a glimmer of hope. Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to assess each situation, and offer solutions.
Providing a safe and stable home environment can be the most important factor in a woman's life during pregnancy, and can have a positive impact on the health and well-being of both the mother and child.
