2015–2017 Mission Grant: Redeeming Life Maternity Home — Sanford, Florida, $100,000 fully paid
Mission Grant # 5 — Redeeming Life Maternity Home (RLMH) recently received $50,000 of its $100,000 LWML Mission Grant for the 2015–2017 biennium. Bunnie Koelsch, LWML Florida-Georgia District President, had the joy of visiting the home and presenting the check.
Located in Sanford, Florida, RLMH exists to offer hope and opportunity to single, expectant women in crisis. They provide a safe and comfortable home as well as opportunities to gain the life skills necessary for success and independence. Each resident takes part in educational and/or employment planning, classes in financial literacy, cooking, household management, and parenting skills. Individual and spiritual growth is fostered by the caring staff of RLMH.
Capable of accommodating up to seven residents, the two women currently living in the home are expecting in the near future. The home is located across the street from Lutheran Church of the Redeemer where the women attend church. It was with great joy that on Sunday, June 5, 2016, one of the residents was confirmed. Thankfully, we were able to provide the first half of their Mission Grant to help them continue this good work.
