Our Supporters

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.
