As part of our strategic restructuring following our merger, we announced the launch of our new maternity home which we’ve been called to start for years called “The Lily Pad” on a webcast which raised $227,284 in one week to create a residential and transformational home in the Borderland for young women aged 16 and older, who find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy and need a safe and supportive home for up to 18 months, from pregnancy to postpartum. It is named after the lily as a symbol of St. Joseph who sought shelter for a young woman in an unexpected pregnancy.
