by Valerie Harkins, Director of Maternity Housing Coalition
The Maternity Housing Coalition (MHC) is excited to announce three features available to Heartbeat International affiliates.
1. Announcing our new housing locator tool!
a. This tool is free to all affiliates.
b. An online application is built into the tool. With the application feature, affiliated homes receive an email with a snapshot of the potential client's information including her name, gestation, current location, and if she currently has a safe place to stay.
c. Affiliate homes are matched with a woman based on the intake information entered. When you reach out to connect with this young woman, you are already prepared with the information you need to have a successful and fruitful conversation.
2. Option Line is partnered with MHC!
a. Option Line is available 24/7, including holidays, to assist women applying for maternity housing.
3. Maternity Homes can Forward Calls to Option Line!
a. Maternity home affiliates can forward calls to Option Line after hours as a complementary benefit of affiliation. When your office is closed, even during meetings or events, Option Line is here to assist women attempting to contact your maternity home.
b. Option Line is bilingual! This gives you peace of mind knowing that even Spanish-speaking callers are being served.
c. Click here to learn how to take advantage of this benefit.
Next Step: Click here to register to be added to the housing locator tool today! We aim to create a robust directory of maternity homes where you can list your services so women can be connected and served even faster. With our partnership with Option Line, we will reach even more!
