Shalom Bayit Foundation

About Us

Help for Pregnant Teens

Shalom Bayit Foundation (SBF) provides shelter to pregnant teen mothers aged 14 to 20, as well as young mothers with children. We guide them towards becoming self-sufficient, healthy, and caring parents who contribute positively to their community.

At SBF, we offer counseling, nurturing, and love to these young mothers, instilling in them a sense of their unique worth. With our support, they transform into champions, breaking the cycle of victimhood. Our mission is to empower them to make positive and healthy life choices for both themselves and their babies.

SBF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization currently based in the Kunkletown, PA area.

Shalom bayit is a Hebrew term that means “peace in the home.” It signifies the state of contentment and harmony among family members.

Our Mission

Shalom Bayit Foundation’s objective is to save the children in every aspect; the young ladies who are with child and the child to be. It is our goal to house, counsel, direct, nurture and love all of our extended family so they enter the world knowing they are someone special–able to cope with all the world has to serve; being victors not victims. Counseling for the young men, should they want to marry the mother of their child; or want to be involved in the rearing responsibilities of their child. Shalom Bayit Foundation’s purpose is to set forth an example for all our children to achieve a personal relationship with God.

Our Vision

To build a Shalom Bayit Foundation House/Village in every state of the United States and every country around the world.

Our Board of Directors

Founder & President,
D. Eileen Bailey

D. Eileen Bailey is a woman of compassion and understanding who has a vision to improve life for young ladies in every community across the United States. A nurturer in character, she is a mother to all, a good friend to many, a counselor and sage with the ability to unabashedly communicate her experiences with the intention of deterring others from making the same mistakes she has made.

Eileen has a message for all young women who become pregnant “Life is difficult for everyone”; she says, “There is only one Being who will never let you down, never disappoint you, and will love you no matter what–God….do your best and God will do the rest.” To the parents of these young women she advises,“Today media, the internet, peer pressure and other obstacles in our world make it much more difficult to protect and teach our children; don’t leave them too long to their own resources”
