We are what we eat...

Did you ever wonder what a group of pregnant young ladies eat? 


Despite the images you now have of pickles, ice cream and 2 a.m. chicken wing bonanzas in your head, they actually eat very well here- thankfully due to the people that support us.

We want you to know that good health is being maintained and we are grateful for every healthy young woman and every healthy baby!

So, in case you’re curious, here’s a sample menu that we decided to share. It is never the same. Keep in mind our residents each choose one meal during the week. This enables them to research and menu plan, keep track of nutrition and learn how to shop and budget. They also assist with preparation for their meal, so cooking skills are acquired!

As you will see, they are truly blessed!!
