Welcome to Sunlight of Collier County

A residential maternity home that provides a safe, loving, family atmosphere that serves pregnant women and teens.

We offer help toward physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.

About Us

Sunlight Home was founded in June of 1994 to help break the cycle of poverty and abuse for pregnant women and teens through a Christ-centered environment.

Since we opened in 1994, we have served hundreds of pregnant women and their children and we have witnessed the positive effect of the hard work put forth by the residents, the staff, and our 12-member governing board.

Since the founding of Sunlight Home, we have never received government funding. We have been able to operate the program, which serves as many as 20 residents and their children each year, through private donations and private grants. Many churches and organizations have come alongside Sunlight to assure a home atmosphere to moms and their children in crises.

Because we are a God-based program we are able to offer hope in a hopeless situation.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God says:

“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.”

We strive to offer everyone who comes through our doors the future and hope that this verse speaks of.

Thank you for all you do to help us through your time and your donations.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered environment for pregnant women of all ages so they can be renewed through emotional and physical wholeness and spiritual training. We believe this is accomplished through education, church attendance, Bible study, counseling, parenting, and childbirth classes, and through our love and concern.

Our greatest mission is to help each mother understand that her unborn baby or child is a precious gift from God.

The vision of Sunlight Home is to empower pregnant women and teens to break the cycle of poverty and abuse.

Testimonials

Sunlight Home Graduate

Sunlight Home has done a lot for me. I was able to go back into school and finish my sophomore year. Also I’ve learned a lot about having a baby and being able to take care of a baby. If I was at home I would of never known if I was having trouble with my pregnancy and how to be able to take care of my son. Sunlight Home has done wonderful things for me and if I knew someone who was in trouble with their pregnancy I would so recommend them here.

I am always wowed by how much is accomplished in such a short amount of time. We are proud of each woman’s success and we anxiously wait to hear back from her after she leaves. As they live here, they build relationships with those around them and they become part of the Sunlight Home family. Thank you to all of the volunteers, supporters, board members, and community members that work together to make all of this possible.

“I was homeless and Sunlight Home was my only option. Since I have been here I received prenatal care, information about adoption and I have learned life skills to help me toward my future success. After being here for 6months, I had my son Jacob Scott. I made the choice for him to have a mother, a father and siblings through adoption. It was a hard choice but the best one I could make for my son, as well as myself. Someday, my son will understand how much I loved him to give him a better life, and he will know that my life changed for the better as well.
