Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Visitation House is to provide a safe, secure and caring environment for women during their crisis pregnancy and to prepare women to live as self-sufficiently as possible when they leave.
We offer safety, security, personal development, empowerment and growth for the mother. We do this through counseling, case management, positive reinforcement, community resources and assistance in reaching individual personal goals. Visitation House is a temporary home for women during their pregnancy and after childbirth.
Visitation House was a vision by Father Tom Connery, Pastor of St Peter Catholic Church in Deland Florida. His idea was to create a safe home for women who were pregnant and had few options and nowhere to go. Father Tom Connery presented his church with a challenge to be part of the solution.
Visitation House Incorporated welcomed our first resident on December 15, 2007. It became a safe place for our residents to strive while they are pregnant and should they choose to parent, a place of comfort during their pregnancy months and after child birth.
Our organization transitioned in 2015 to become a 501c3 non profit organization. We continue to serve the needs of many women and babies. Visitation House relies soley on the generous donations from private donors, churches, grants and corporate sponsors.
