How You Can Help

You & Your Church Can Help

This is a wonderful Christian ministry that reaches out to homeless pregnant girls/women. Many lives are touched through your support. There are so many ways you can help as individuals or churches.

  1. PRAYER – Prayer ideas include: Overall ministry, the pregnant women (and babies), the Board of Directors, meeting financial needs (ongoing and special), wisdom in decision making.

  2. FINANCES & GIVING – We are a wholistic ministry, which means we try to meet all the needs of the pregnant women, the physical, social, educational, emotional, and even spiritual needs. One of the ways to meet the spiritual need is to require the women to attend church. However, because of this requirement we cannot receive any Federal or State grant monies. We solely rely on churches and individuals to make donations to this ministry. Please remember that all of the pregnant women who come to us are in a homeless situation. They have practically nothing to their name. We buy them clothing and even personal items. Any donation you make is tax deductible; we hold a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status. Please also check out our “Needs List” (see below). And remember, any financial donations are welcome! Make your checks payable to: Clara’s House, Inc.

  3. VOLUNTEERING – Volunteers are always welcome! Whether it’s just a few hours, an entire day, or longer, you are more than welcome to help join in on serving at Clara’s House! Please give us a call to see what our current volunteer needs are.

  4. SERVING AS A HOST FAMILY – Has God given you a compassionate heart for girls in crisis pregnancies? Do you have the gift of hospitality? Do you have an extra bedroom in your home you’re not using? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to consider being a host family for a pregnant girl. Just check out the Being A Host Family link for more info!

  5. SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER – We can offer you FREE quarterly newsletters to keep you updated on our ministry. Just supply us with your mailing address and your email address!

Ministry Consulting

Do you have a passion for Pro-Life work? Do you have leadership skills? Do you have a desire or calling to learn how to open a ministry like this one?

Maybe God has laid that burden on your heart.

If so, please give our Director, Kathy Koch-Villoresi, a call at (570) 383-3050 or email her. She is more than happy to consult with you and help you start your maternity shepherding home ministry. She will start with the basics or start where you are at and go from there!

God has allowed us to help five other folks start their ministries. We may ask for a small fee/donation. We also have designed materials that are available for purchase that can help your ministry get started.

If God is calling you to this ministry, feel free to email or give us a call.
