Amira's House - Teen Maternity Home

Amira's House was born out of the vision of Rene Lackey, who has a heart for helping teen moms with the resources and guidance for them to keep their babies and parent with confidence. Rene has personally mentored several teenage girls to help them overcome the shame that can be associated with an unplanned pregnancy, and embrace an exciting new season in their life.

We are now embarking on our first major fundraising initiative to purchase our first residence and hire two full-time house parents. Rene has been receiving mentorship and serving at another maternity home to gain valuable experience that will help ensure Amira's House provides a safe environment to help teen moms overcome the past, embrace the present, and prepare for the future.
