We are a non-profit home and outreach, providing safe shelter to homeless or abused pregnant, parenting, and adopting young women in Central Oregon.


Grandma’s House has provided shelter, hope, support and tools to help young parents make good life decisions for themselves and their babies for over twenty years.  We emphasize wellness and healthy development of children, families and communities though education, guidance and support. Whether choosing adoption or parenting Grandma’s House offers support at a time when they need it the most.  When young mothers and babies transition from Grandma’s House into independent living they become a part of our outreach program called ‘Angels Wing’.  There they continue to receive support and services. ‘Angels Wing’ is a part of our outreach to all pregnant and parenting teens in need.

The goal of Grandma’s House is to help each young woman become self sufficient and able to make responsible decisions for herself and her child. Grandma’s House provides a safe and stable shelter, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days with case management, counseling and educational opportunities.  Our Workshops include childbirth education and skills for living.  We are the only home east of the Cascades serving the shelter needs of this vulnerable population.
