The Star of the North Maternity Home helps to fill the need for housing for pregnant mothers and/or mothers with children experiencing housing instability in our Northland communities. Our hope is to go beyond housing to transform women’s lives with education, holistic medical care, and comprehensive services by partnering with our TFLN collaborative and community partners. Whether the mother wants to keep her baby or explore adoption, we will be here to support them to independence.
Our residences house women while pregnant and after they have their child for up to 12-18 months. We are here to assist our moms towards independence by providing a program and care management focused on parenting skills, education, and finding transitional housing. Each situation is unique and we will support them in their time of need.
Twin Ports - Duluth, MN
In 2019, the Star of the North Maternity Home opened as a loving and stable Christian family-like supportive home available for four homeless pregnant mothers and/or their babies with the focus of moving them to self-sufficiency. The home provides private bedrooms and shared common areas. We serve women ages 21+ with children ages 0-2 in NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin.
Iron Range - Hibbing, MN
The Iron Range programming and home-like model is similar to the Twin Ports, but with a twist. The home includes apartment-style living for moms 18+, with more than one child up to age 10, or plans to reunify with their children. There is also an educational space for day programming.
