Mission Statement

St. Gianna’s Place proclaims the dignity of God-given life from the moment of fertilization.  We seek to foster self-respect and independence for pregnant women in need and their babies in a nurturing and safe environment.

St. Gianna’s Place offers transitional housing for women facing crisis pregnancies and their babies.  In addition to a welcoming, Christ-centered home, we offer:

  • Life skills training, including personal financial planning and developing a household budget
  • Educational and job skills training
  • Parenting skills
  • Spiritual, emotional, and social support, including counseling when appropriate

Our core values include the recognition of a divine purpose and plan for every conceived child, the promotion of healthy families, and the fostering of self-worth in pregnant women in need.

We support our core values with the following strategies:

  • Providing a nurturing and loving environment where pregnant women are welcomed with love and respect
  • Fostering self-respect, independence, and healthy families through educational opportunities
  • Encouraging community involvement and service to others to cultivate a sense of self- worth and accomplishment
