The Martin & Parr Family, The Kirkwood Foundation, and Anna M. Turri issued a combined matching challenge grant to construct Joann’s Cottage. The Martin and Parr families-built Joann’s Cottage in loving memory of their beloved mother and grandmother, Joann Sirrine. Joann’s Cottage is a faith-based, family-style maternity home for girls providing comprehensive care for young mothers and young mothers-to-be. The maternity home operates at a secure location in a traditional family neighborhood, welcoming girls into a safe, healthy, and productive environment 24 hours a day/seven days a week.
What We Do
Joann’s Cottage provides professional case management, independent living services, parenting classes, access to quality medical care, and comprehensive support services to ensure the safety and well-being of the mothers and mothers-to-be. In addition to this, Joann’s Cottage offers consistent residential care, supervision, and healthy influences that strive to meet each girl’s physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and educational needs.
