Our History

MAUBC was founded by a local Catholic couple in 1984. At the time, they were raising their seven children, yet felt called to do more. Pregnant young women seemed to rain around them. 

One day, their family was driving in a slippery rain when the car ahead of them spun out and crashed. The husband stopped the car, and the whole family ran to the accident site. A pregnant woman was lying in the road with no signs of life. He began CPR and when the police arrived, they told him to stop, the woman was dead. But his family cried out, “Don’t stop, Dad, keep going!” And so he continued and the woman revived, and her baby also survived. 

The couple also encountered homeless pregnant girls and took them into their home and family.

Eventually, needing additional capacity to serve those in need, they founded Mother and Unborn Baby Care. And later, they also helped establish a home where homeless pregnant women could live at no charge for several months leading up to and following their child’s birth.

Through the community’s support, MAUBC continues to bring help and hope to the women who come through our doors. 

Our mission is centered on prayer and thanksgiving for our clients and their families, our staff, board members and volunteers, and all our supporters.

Our Patroness

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Mother and Unborn Baby Care invokes the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe and was formally consecrated to her on May 12, 2021.

It is only in this apparition that our Lady appears as pregnant. She wears a maternity band around her waist, and her head is bowed in homage to her Son whom she carries in her womb. She carries Life itself. 

We pray that Our Lady of Guadalupe will intercede on behalf of the expectant parents who come to us in fear, for the unborn children whose lives hang in the balance, and for our staff members and volunteers who extend hope and compassion. May her loving presence draw all closer to her Son and to honoring God-given life.
