The Amherst Residence is a non-denominational Christ-centered residence that nurtures and protects new life by providing a safe haven for pregnant and parenting young women with support for the baby and family. We are here to serve young women and families ages 16-24 in need of a loving & nurturing environment during their time of pregnancy & beyond.


The Amherst Residence empowers and equips vulnerable young mothers, babies and families for lives of hope, dignity and self-sufficiency.


The Amherst Residence respects individuals at all stages of life and fosters loving, family-centered and faith-based values. We believe in giving birth to dreams and that we are responsible for one another.


The Amherst Residence aims to provide for the immediate physical and emotional needs of our residents including shelter, food, clothing and a supportive community. We help mothers connect with the appropriate agencies and resources including prenatal care, health insurance, educational programs, vocational programs and housing. We aim to support parents in reaching both short-term and long-term goals and treating every person with dignity and respect.
