Washington Examiner: At The Bethlehem House, We Believe Loving Families Will Change the World

It’s early in the morning at Bethlehem House, and our campus is already bustling with activity as children get ready for school, mothers prep for a busy workday, and some of the grandparents that live on the grounds step out for a morning walk. I smile as different people wave good morning — our community is like a large extended family.

It’s a community we’ve spent decades building. Nearly 20 years ago, a group of friends and I were heartbroken to see so many broken families in our community and the women who suffered as a result. We knew that the “quick fix” of abortion was not the answer for pregnant women struggling with poverty, addiction, and homelessness — but what hope did they or their children have?

We came up with an action-oriented solution to address the root causes of their suffering: the Bethlehem House.

This sentiment and the important work of such homes were highlighted during the national March for Life Rally in Washington D.C. on Jan. 20.

Gina Tomes, co-founder and program director for Bethlehem House in Omaha, Neb., shared the successes of Bethlehem House and efficacy of maternity housing in the U.S. for the tens of thousands gathered for the first March for Life since the overturn of Roe v. Wade last June.

Pregnancy help personnel have said that the need for pregnancy help has not changed since the Dobbs ruling that reversed Roe, and if anything, the need has been heightened. Regardless of the legal status of abortion or the regulations in a given state, every day there will be women who learn they are pregnant unexpectedly and who will need pregnancy help.
