About Elizabeth House

Our mission is to empower pregnant and parenting women in need to reclaim their lives and build successful family legacies. In 1993 Founding Director, Debora Unruh, witnessed firsthand the impact of homelessness and trauma on the next generation. While in labor with her first-born son, she watched incredulously as the woman next to her lost custody of her newborn due to her drug use and homeless situation. This experience infused in Debora  passion to make a difference in this vulnerable population. Around the same time, a local Pasadena resident donated a house to the Pasadena Covenant Church for the purpose of serving at-risk women and children in the community. A small community group assembled, researched, and concluded there was no shelter for pregnant women and their children who had no place to call home within 15 miles of the city. Debora worked together with community partners and generous donors to welcome the first resident on July 15, 1994. Twenty-five years later, Elizabeth House has provided essential shelter, food, care, and counseling to over 800 women and children.
