It all started with a simple prayer. After dealing with a very heart-wrenching experience with a woman facing an unexpected pregnancy and no where to go, Luke & Cristal McClain prayed, " If only we had an extra room, we would take her, and others in her situation, into our home." Little did they know that in just 4 months, someone would donate a house for this exact purpose and from one moment to the next - The Nest was born. We are a maternity and hospitality home for women facing an unexpected pregnancy. We are located in St. Michael, MN and we serve Wright County and the greater Twin Cities area. We are a ministry of Youth With A Mission Minneapolis.
Our mission is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of women facing unexpected pregnancies through providing a safe home, mentorship, good nutrition practices, education and counseling.
Our vision is that every woman will be guided with care, joy and dignity as she decides whether to parent or place her baby for adoption.
