Pregnancy Services - Helping provide the best care for babies & their families

We assist young mothers and fathers and their families during pregnancy through the baby’s first year of life with medical referrals, education and counseling services. We support parents by teaching parenting and life skills, securing resources, medical care and, when requested, assistance with infant adoptions.

Join us for our Pregnancy Series where you can earn baby's clothes, gift cards, diapers and more! Call Colleen Kitowski at 713.874.6760 for more information.
