Pregnancy and New Parent Support

Special Thanks to Board Member Jim Hurley and Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers for donating $2,000 toward the costs of an advertising campaign geared toward reaching pregnant women in need of support.  Twenty HRT buses will feature the image above with Catholic Charities' contact information in the hopes of reaching pregnant women in need of support and resources.  The bus ads will run for six months.

Special thanks to the Diocese of Richmond for Respect Life Grant funding that enables Catholic Charities to provide pregnant women and new parents with education, material assistance and planning to ensure the best future possible for children and their families.
