Cindy & Skip sorum


Skip and Cindy Sorum are passionate about investing in the lives of at-risk pregnant young women and Cindy is committed to being the director for Saving Grace Maternity Home. Having served for several years as live-in house parents in a similar home, they truly feel called by God to continue to meet this strategic need through the operation of this home. Saving Grace will be dedicated to the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of these single pregnant mothers and their developing babies. They believe and have seen that a faith-based family environment is profoundly effective in providing for these young women what they need most: a safe haven where they can stay while learning the skills they need to make a better life for themselves and their babies.
