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.
