ST. MARYS â€“ Catholic Charities recently received a $6,000 from Women Who Care to support their Real Alternatives Program.
Nanci Mattison, who serves as Director of Catholic Charities, explained that the program is a way to help deter expecting mothers in a crisis situation from abortion.
â€śIn the program we provide counseling and help them look for other options,â€ť Mattison said. â€śWe are a pro-life agency and seek to show them alternatives to abortion, help assist them and realize they can do it as a parent.â€ť
The Real Alternatives program is always seeking funding to service clients with a much-needed item.
â€śWe see a client two times a month and provide them with two to three packs of diapers until the child is one year of age,â€ť said Mattison. â€śWe give 20-30 packages through the entire program.â€ť
