Genesis House of Northeast Missouri is a not-for-profit corporation established in May 2007, in response to the increasing number of pregnancies to single/unwed mothers and lack of resources to support them. The only faith-based organization in northeast Missouri, and one of only a handful in the state, it offers mothers and their babies – born and unborn – a safe home in which to live.  Genesis House empowers mothers who have minimal support in their lives to examine past choices, determine practical plans for a new direction, and take the first steps into a hope-filled future. Genesis House- “A Safe Place for First Steps and Second Chances”.
