Madonna House

A residential program for women who are pregnant and above the age of 18. This transitional living program assists women and their newborn children.


Important Information

What is Madonna House?

Madonna House is a transitional living program for women choosing life. Pregnant women and mothers of infants find a home in the midst of a chaotic and challenging time in their lives. Residents appreciate the support they offer to one another in a communal setting, sharing the living spaces while enjoying a spacious private bedroom, bathroom, and closet. Madonna House moms have the opportunity to find their footing before stepping out on their own again.

Do I qualify?

Madonna House serves women 18 years of age and older who are pregnant or who have young infants. Many Madonna House residents are employed, but employment is not required for entry into the program. Our program will consider applications regardless of race, religion, criminal background or country of origin.

There are no fees charged for the services provided.

If you are not pregnant, but have custody of other children, visit our St. Elizabeth Lodge page.

If you are pregnant, want help, but feel this is not the right program for you, call or text our HOPELINE at (918) 978-4673 to receive personal advice. (Calls and texts are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All inquiries are confidential).

If you would like to apply, but have some questions about the program, call (918) 508-7140.
