TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- A ribbon-cutting and open house was held today for the Gardner-Simmons Providence House, a new chapter for mothers in need.

The house provides services for girls 12 through 21 who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy.

Visitors were provided tours of the home which can house ten girls at a time, according to board member Gill Simmons.

Girls who choose adoption as an option can stay up to 3 months after the adoption while girls who choose to keep their babies can stay six months after delivery.

"We got where DHC wasn't sending us girls anymore so we had to consider something else. So that is why we got into this program here and we feel like it is going  to do wonders for our community and the state of Mississippi," says Simmons.
