About:
Expect Hope, a Christ-centered residential program for unsupported, expectant women, provides a safe residence for mothers who desire to prepare a life for their new families. It is a privately funded, non­profit organization serving women in the Bronx, New York.

Why We Love This Affiliate
We love that Expect Hope is a supportive housing residence located in a zip code with one of the highest rates of abortion (45%) and that they are meeting the physical, social, and emotional needs of women facing unplanned pregnancies.

When I first came into the home, it was filled with genuine love and compassion and a lot of support....In light of what I've learned at Expect Hope, my view of God is that He's a provider and a sustainer and I'm very grateful that He allowed me to have this second chance.
