What is expected of the daughters of the house?

  • Daughters of the Martha and Mary Maternity House each pursue their own chosen program of study or vocational training, unless they employed (or actively seeking new employment). 
  • We live together as a family, respecting one another as sisters and sharing responsibility for our home, preparing meals and housekeeping.  
  • As a family, we say morning and evening prayers together, study the Bible and worthwhile texts, and attend Sunday worship services.  
  • All Daughters of the Martha and Mary Maternity House live by basic rules of the house and must participate in pre-natal, childbirth, parenting and life-skills classes; career preparation; and adoption counseling.
  • As a part of the admission process, we will discuss your needs and priorities, as well as the needs and priorities of the House.
