The Fern House is a Pregnancy Resource Center and Maternity Home in the Greater Accra Region. The Fern House serves the community by educating women and men about pregnancy. The services provided help families make informed decisions about parenting options, sexual integrity and health. We provide the resources necessary for successful parenting: counsel on parenting options, prenatal care, nutritional counsel, and family management skills. The Fern House has space to house up to eight women for up to one year. The ministry attends to the women’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs during what can be one of the most challenging times in a woman’s life. The participants receive initial life skills training and assistance in pursuing long-term educational and career goals.
The Fern House Pregnancy Resource Center exists to save the lives of unborn children and their mothers, preserve the family and promote sexual integrity through awareness and prevention.
The Fern House Maternity Home supports women faced with a crisis pregnancy by providing physical and spiritual assistance as well as education and life skills training so inhabitants will be able to support themselves and their children.
