Amira’s House was born out of the vision of Rene Lackey, who has a heart for helping young women facing an unplanned pregnancy with the resources and guidance for them to keep their babies and parents with confidence. Rene has personally mentored several girls to help them overcome the shame that can be associated with an unplanned pregnancy, and embrace an exciting new season in their life.
Amira’s House filed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2018, setting the wheels in motion to bring Rene’s bold vision to life. Since the organization was founded, we have established a board of directors, program guidelines, and policies and procedures. Most importantly, we opened the doors to our first residential home, located in a quiet neighborhood in Keller, Texas. We already have been blessed to provide safe housing and comprehensive support to several young mommas and their infants, and we are excited about the next season for the ministry.
