The Home also provides a life-skills curriculum to empower the unwed mothers with the tools necessary to live independently as well as provide counseling to shoe wanting to improve themselves and set goals for the future. Additionally, the Home provides the opportunity for the unwed mothers to work or complete schooling and it provides a positive environment to enable unwed mothers to build self-esteem enabling them to respect themselves, their bodies, and make good decisions in future relationships. The Mary Elizabeth Maternity Home is located in Hays, Kansas and serves women all over the United States.
