A woman facing an unplanned pregnancy with little or no support is in a state of crisis, and the mission of Birthright of Memphis is to provide non-judgmental support to these mothers. Catholic Charities is happy to announce that we are partnering with Birthright to help them expand that support.
Through this new ministry, Catholic Charities will provide vital supplies for Birthright’s efforts to care for these mothers throughout their pregnancies.
Food: Catholic Charities will provide a food box for each month of the pregnancy that is nutritionally planned for expectant mothers by a dietitian.
Maternity Clothes: Catholic Charities has a clothing closet of new maternity clothing available to Birthright clients.
Parenting classes: Birthright offers a series of classes on life skills, pregnancy and parenting, and Catholic Charities plans to offer an additional location for this course at the Catholic Charities office, 1325 Jefferson Ave.
Happies: Catholic Charities is seeking small gifts for Birthright clients to offer monthly throughout the pregnancy as a form of encouragement and enjoyment. These could be necessary items such as a package of infant washcloths or something for Mom, such as scented soap.
