Pregnancy Decision Health Centers




The Guardian Angel Program is an 18 month program for women who are desirous and highly motivated to radically change their lives for the better. At the end of the 18 month program, enrollees in the program will be transformed into independently strong mothers who have character, sound decision making and relationship management skills, are highly employable, have educational goals, and have a significant relationship with God. One of the steps in this transformation is the removal of the mother from an environment which is counter-productive to her growth. Since the enrollee will be emulating real life by paying 30% of their income (the central Ohio average for housing) and encouraging independence over dependence. An additional effect of the housing assistance program will be the opportunities for collaboration with organizations that would not normally entertain such collaboration further impacts the community now and in the future. Collaborative partners may include colleges and universities, grocery store chains, big box retail, hotel chains, churches, schools, hospitals, etc.
