One of the local ministries ENCOUNTER supports through your giving is Tender Life Maternity Home. Tender Life is a Christian maternity home that provides safe housing for pregnant women who are homeless or at risk for homelessness. Tender Life provides supportive services through case management, with a goal of the women being self-sufficient after their baby is born. Tender Life is currently home to 2 pregnant women expecting 2 babies, plus 2 toddlers, 4 mothers and their newborn babies, 1 missionary serving as a mentor and a house manager, Lauren Stockton. Tender Life is also home to a family of four living in the graduate house.
In addition to your giving, there are many ways to serve Tender Life families. For more information, email Clare.
