About Elisha House Pregnancy & Family Support Centre
Sometimes there are circumstances (physical, emotional, economic and timing) in which a woman is challenged by her pregnancy. Elisha House exists to help women explore their situation, to provide them with accurate information, practical guidance, encouragement and emotional support during and after the pregnancy.
We recognize that the solutions to an unplanned pregnancy are not simple. We help each woman and anyone who may be directly involved with her pregnancy explore her situation and give counsel that will help her make a 'life affirming' decision.
We are a Christian, non-profit, charitable organisation committed to providing hands-on assistance for the physical, social, mental and spiritual needs of those in crisis within our community. This loving care is declared and demonstrated by offering programmes and one-on-one support.
Our goal is to provide accurate information and support to women, men and families who are challenged by a crisis pregnancy and related issues.
