About Our Ministry
Beautiful U is passionately committed to serving our community and the surrounding Chicagoland area as a Christ-centered, "family-style" intervention program for at-risk pregnant teens and young mothers. It is our desire to share the good news of God’s unconditional love with each mom as we provide the individualized physical, emotional and spiritual care and support that she needs in order to help her move into the next stage of her life while feeling loved, supported, confident and independent.
Beautiful U works together with various social work organizations. Our referrals come from a large matrix made-up of crisis centers, hospitals, health departments, school districts, shelters, churches and the Department of Children and Family Services. Upon acceptance into our free-of-charge, voluntary program, each applicant is prayerfully placed with a Beautiful U Satellite-Home family. Based on our experience, a safe, secure, Christ-Centered family environment is an essential part of our process which is why we operate a “family-style” program where healthy, biblical, parenting and life skills are taught and modeled so that our applicants can move toward a more positive and independent future.

We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe that all mankind is by nature and by choice sinful and in need of salvation.
