Guiding Star

As an outreach program of the Pro-Life Union (PLU) of Greater Philadelphia, Guiding Star Ministries (GSM) Maternity Home provides shelter and assistance to pregnant women and their children.  The staff and residents of GSM strive to work together to create a beautiful home and a welcoming community.  We foster an atmosphere in which each person is genuinely loved and supported in order that they may thrive both in our home and beyond.  To accomplish this, we offer practical and material assistance as well as spiritual and emotional support to empower mothers and their children, enabling them to cultivate meaningful relationships, develop life-skills and achieve their goals. 

Lifeline Monthly Giving

Become a Guardian of Guiding Star Ministries

Guiding Star Ministries is able to house as many as 9 women. If all of these women were to have a baby while living at Guiding Star, we will have significantly impacted at least 18 lives. Guiding Star Ministries enrolls women in employment and/or educational programs, and we also offer in-home counseling services as well as provide day-to-day necessities (such as food, clothing, diapers, bedding, hygiene products, etc.).

Your monthly gift is tax-deductible, and will enroll you as a Guardian of Guiding Star Ministries. You will receive our quarterly newsletter as well as updates on how your gift is changing the lives of these courageous women who are choosing LIFE.  

Thank you for becoming a Guardian of Guiding Star Ministries!
