Guiding Light is a Maternity Home for homeless, pregnant ladies and young moms in Lima, OH. It was established in 2009 by Julianne Frankhouser (Burk)
Our mission is to keep homeless, pregnant women and young moms off the streets, get them educated and teach them the life skills they need to make it on their own. We want to show them there is a way, a hope and a brighter future... and to help them achieve the goal of establishing a stable home for themselves and their children.
“Guiding Light Ministries is a Non Profit Organization dedicated to providing a safe environment for homeless, pregnant women and young moms. We strive to educate mothers on how to possess qualities needed to be successful, and to effectively care for themselves and their child. We will work toward decreasing repeat pregnancy rates and long term government dependency.”
