For about six years, God has been forming in Erica Jackson a heart for single mothers. However, this past year, He has given her a place to dwell with them. She is calling it Haven. At its root, the word haven represents refuge and a place of shelter. Erica states, “The heartbeat of ‘The Haven’ is to build secure, healthy, and vibrant families offering women care, respect, and life education in Birmingham, AL.”
So, not only is Haven going to be a place of refuge for single mothers, it’s going to be a life-giving home that gives women space to be mothers. It is Erica’s desire for Haven to be an inner-city maternity home for single mothers of low socioeconomic status: who have minimal access to healthcare resources because of a lack of education and support.
Haven is a ministry of CommonThread.org. Thanks to Buzzbox members like you we are able to support these valuable ministries.
