The Elizabeth House is a maternity and parenting home for single, pregnant women or those who have just given birth. There is no charge to live with us, just a desire to learn and grow into the best woman and mom you can be!

We provide a safe and secure environment for mothers to become emotionally healthy and self-sufficient. Residents build life skills that will help them to secure employment and housing, manage money and foster sound decision-making. They also learn effective parenting skills or make an adoption plan.

The dedicated and trained personnel are available 24-hours a day to care for and encourage each resident during her stay.

The Elizabeth House is not an emergency shelter. We are a program that provides help in the following areas: physical, emotional, spiritual and life skills needed to help you become self-sufficient and independent. Each woman has her own bedroom to share with her baby once he or she is born. You may share a bathroom.

The Elizabeth House, founded in 2003, is a program of Care Net Pregnancy Center of Dane County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the greater Madison area.
