Local church to open home for pregnant youth


New Beginnings Community Church will open a home for teenage mothers next December.

The Matthews church will break ground on the property, Oct. 30 and prepare for construction. 

The residence, called Hope Home, will help each mom build necessary parenting and life skills. 

Up to five teenage girls at a time, ages 13 to 19, are able to stay in the home for up to 18 months. 

Resources for the mothers will include a mental health assessment, an individual care plan and case management.

The home is a part of a larger subdivision that the church purchased several years ago.
