Pregnancy & Parenting Support
Representative of our Catholic identity, we believe that all life is precious. This program provides information, education and counseling to encourage expectant parents to choose life over abortion, and to make them aware of resources available to them.
We understand that some pregnant women are apprehensive about their own ability to care for the physical and emotional needs of a new child. This program provides information, education and counseling to encourage expectant parents to choose life over abortion. We work with women to show them various resources and supports that are available to help them. We also help women understand that should they decide they are not ready or able to provide the loving home a child needs, there are many other loving families who are desperately hoping/waiting for a child to love.

The Toddler Program aids struggling or low-income families with children ages 1-3 that are having difficulty purchasing necessities for their children. The goal for this program is for each parent to leave with a good understanding of their child’s needs to provide a better life for their child and themselves. Families that are enrolled in this program are seen monthly. At each appointment, families receive a package of items for their child containing things like:
- Three toddler meals, applesauce, yogurt
- Shampoo, wipes, toothpaste
- Extra items as available
The population we serve are women who are currently pregnant or may be pregnant. We can also work with a mother of a child who is under 12 months of age. In addition, we work with biological fathers of an unborn child or a child less than 12 months of age. All clients must be residents of Pennsylvania. This program is available at the Bradford and St. Marys offices. Contact these offices directly for further information.
