"No one should have to choose to terminate a pregnancy or give up their child because of temporary circumstances surrounding homelessness and/or limited resources. We want to empower women - promote better outcomes, loving them both!"
Sherry Danalis, President of F.U.S.E.

I experienced the Kingdom of God. It was as if God plucked me from the woods himself and put me in His own palace.
I want to advocate for those who need support facing a crisis pregnancy after what I experienced at Nehemiah House. Today I have a license, a car, a stable job, and purchased my own home.
Miss Chareese / Mentor
I wish when I was a young mother facing unplanned pregnancy that I had the support and community like Nehemiah House gives these young ladies. I'm overwhelmed that I get to be on the other end providing support and making sure they are not alone when baby is born.
