Our most exciting news as we wrapped up the end of the year is that we passed all inspections and obtained our official Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Livingston! This means the house is complete and ready for residents!!! On top of that we also received numerous items from our house registry, and thanks to the 4th and 5th graders from First Baptist Church, all household items are organized and put away in the house. We still have a few miscellaneous items left on our registry. You can shop the remaining items here. If you've been by the house lately you may have noticed that we have new shutters that were handmade and donated by Shaun and Nacole Walker, our storage building has been moved closer to the home courtesy of Economy Portable Building for better access, and S & S Fence Co. is installing a fence and entry gate to offer extra protection for future residents.
Happy New Year!
As we move into another new year, we have some very specific needs that we would like you to pray for and share with anyone and everyone!
We are hiring!!!
Several years ago, we asked you to help us "Open the doors to the House of Mary"... It is time! Now, we need you to help us get the word out. In order for House of Mary to open, we need someone to live in and manage the home. We have named this position "House Parent/Resident Director." The position may be filled by either a single woman or married couple (where the wife would hold the position and the husband could still work outside the home). You can find out more by visiting our Job Postings page, emailing us, or chatting with one of our board members. We know that God is preparing the perfect woman/couple for House of Mary and we can't wait to see who He sends.
As we plan forward, we are looking to add a few more Board Members as well as develop an Advisory Board that would act as a sounding board when we need new ideas or advice in various areas of expertise. If you are interested in joining our mission or just want more information, check out our About Us page. Please nominate yourself or someone you think would be a good House of Mary team member. Once again, we believe God is about to send new faces to the House of Mary team.
Now that we have completed our first home our fundraising focus will be on monthly operating expenses. We need dedicated donors like you to keep the house running and provide for the moms who have chosen life for their baby. Your donations will help provide everything from essentials like food and electricity to Bible studies and Educational classes that will change their families for generations to come. Our goal is to Equip, Empower, and Enable these women and we can't do it without you. Click Here to Give.
