WELCOME TO THE BISHOP GALLEGOS MATERNITY HOME
The Bishop Gallegos Maternity Home (BGMH) is a home for women over the age of 18 who are pregnant and in need of shelter, food, safety, comfort and support during their pregnancy and for a short time afterwards.
Established in 1992, we are a non-profit, non-denominational home with a loving environment. We have housed more than 1,000 women and babies since our inception. BGMH is a safe haven that provides temporary shelter, food and education to homeless, pregnant women and their infants. In addition to care and security, we offer case management services to assess the needs of homeless mothers, connecting them to necessary resources for addiction treatment, life skills education, prenatal care and post-traumatic counseling, while providing a handful of these on site.
Numerous agenies in the community have made referrals to us such as St John's Shelter, Loaves and Fishes, Maryhouse, Francis House, county social workers, CPS and numerous agencies from elsewhere up and down the state.
Our goal is to empower these women to become self-sufficient and independent in their return to the community with their babies or to facilitate adoption as an option if they so choose. We are a pro-life home and have found that in saving babies the mothers have also been saved.
We are located in the South Sacramento area. All races, creeds and nationalities are welcome. We are staffed with a live-in director 24/7.
