The Elizabeth House Maternity Home in Bryan/College Station Texas provides expectant mothers and their children a safe, enriching and loving home. We are more than just a shelter. Our mothers receive emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual support so that they have the tools they need to move forward toward a better life for themselves and their children. We also support women who choose to place their child in a loving adoptive home.
