Programs and Services
- Roselia Pregnancy and Parenting Support Services: We oﬀer free and conﬁdential Pregnancy and Parenting Support Services for those who are pregnant and/or have children under the age of two. We provide supportive counseling, free pregnancy tests, and case management assistance for identified needs such as housing, employment, and income acquisition. We also offer life skills education, and basic needs assistance such as basic baby care items including diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, and clothes. Our services seek to ease the struggles and anxieties that many parents experience during the first two years of parenting.
- Basic Needs Assistance: Catholic Charities assists with basic needs providing for essential needs of food, clothing, and personal care items, along with rental assistance, utility assistance (heat, water and electricity), transportation and a myriad of other specific situation solutions. This service focuses on serving the most vulnerable among us including those experiencing domestic violence, high-risk homelessness, seniors, women in a crisis pregnancy situation and those who need relief after a disaster.
- Counseling: We oﬀer individual, couples and group therapy for those navigating emotional challenges. Many individuals and families are struggling with anxiety, depression, and grief over loss of jobs, income and/or family members. In addition, we offer co-parenting sessions for divorced and separating parents who wish to learn to communicate and collaborate better as they raise their children. We have invested in an in-classroom program that helps elementary aged children learn coping skills to help them with emotional upheavals and challenges they might be experiencing including the separation/divorce of parents, grief, and loss, etc. as we believe coping skills learned at this age can impact an individual’s ability as an adult to successfully navigate difficult and challenging circumstances. Some insurances are accepted and sliding scale fee opportunities are available. Services are provided by experienced licensed therapists and are available in person and/or via tele-therapy.
- Senior Services: For Senior Citizens and others who have a disabling condition, we offer free case management services which ensure that the consumer has the opportunity to connect with the appropriate resource seamlessly, regardless of where they make initial contact.
