Pregnancy Counseling Services


How Catholic Charities Helps

If you are in crisis, call our toll-free, 24-hour confidential pregnancy counseling hotline at 1-877-225-7870.

There are no easy answers to an unplanned, unwanted pregnancy.  The staff at Catholic Charities can help you make the best decisions for you and your baby.


Pregnancy counseling allows the expecting parent to carry her child with dignity while making well-thought-out decisions. It also assists the birth father to understand his feelings, rights, and responsibilities to himself, the child, and the child’s mother. Our counselors will give you the gentle guidance and important information you need.


Catholic Charities offers services throughout the entire pregnancy experience.  This help is available to the expecting parent, the birth father, and other members of the families as needed.


Inquiries from those interested in discussing adoption as an option for an unintended pregnancy are always welcome.
