Roselia Program and Support Services
For more than a century, Catholic Charities has steadfastly maintained its commitment to protecting human life through its outreach to low-income, homeless women, and those at risk of homelessness, facing unplanned pregnancies alone.
Catholic Charities has leased several apartments in a secure building in downtown Pittsburgh to provide a safe and comfortable home for these women and their infants. A caseworker meets with residents regularly to provide guidance and track progress on individualized service plans - which include life-skills training, job-readiness skills, and pregnancy and parenting education and counseling.
