  • Financial and residential assistance for those who qualify
  • Legal representation and assistance with complex birthfather issues
  • Transportation to prenatal care and other vital services
  • Long term counseling support after the adoption is completed
  • Educational and career assistance to ensure that you have a bright and fulfilling future.

If you choose to parent, we offer case management and referral to services during and after your pregnancy.  This support service is available to you, the birth father and your child for one year following the birth of the baby.  This support seeks to assist you with:

  • Preparation for childbirth
  • Prenatal care for you and your child to ensure a healthy pregnancy
  • Services to help you develop the skills required for successful parenting
  • Someone to help you navigate and access the community resources needed to assist you in your parenting plan
  • Child care and nutrition information and assistance

Please remember – you don’t have to go through an unplanned or crisis pregnancy alone. To access Hope Cottage support and services, call our confidential help line at 1-800-944-4460 or text 469-418-4518 to speak with a counselor.

At Hope Cottage, we encourage birth parents to choose their child’s adoptive family. You’ll have the opportunity to see pictures and letters about families that are available for your child, and you can choose to meet families before making your final decision.
