About Heather’s House

Heather’s House was created to come alongside single mothers as well as soon to be single mothers. To provide discipleship, training in God’s design for motherhood, to love mothers and their children by empowering, equipping, and educating.

Our Mission

Our mission is to allow women who are experiencing housing insecurity and or trauma to enter a place of stability, safety, and Gods covering. Giving women the ability to choose life. Restoring hope, dignity, and identity in Christ. God will change future generations using us to walk alongside these women and teaching their children to emulate the same principles

Our Vision

We/ the Church are on a local mission to bring revival, and deliverance in this great area of need, that is fatherlessness, combined with the housing crisis. We partner with local Churches, non-profits, and individuals to provide sustainable support and Christian community for generations to come.

Our Story

How We Got Started

New Beginnings Maternity Homes was founded in 2008 by Rhoda Gigstad. Her and her husband Brian worked diligently with the Lord’s guidance to serve roughly 100 women and their children. Sharing everything they have, including their home.

Making a safe refuge for young woman and their children for 12 years.

Carrying the torch for a time was Pastor Mike Miller, Board Chairman, and director of operations. Pastor Mike Miller made a great investment in time and personal resources to purchase a property, designed and engineered a brand new facility to be custom fit to accommodate a community of single mothers, and their children. God led Pastor Mike Miller to elect Heather Richardson as our new director and Board Chairman.
