New Catholic women's health centre opens its doors

Catholic Charities, women's center team up to help young pregnant women
Janessa McKinley, a registered nurse, arranges clothing in the Crib Club at the new Women's Care Center in Hammond, Ind., March 2, the day after it opened.
The B.C. Catholic has a story from Indiana about a new women's health centre that offers help to young pregnant women in crisis:

Thanks to a collaboration of agencies, a foundation and other funding sources, the first Women's Care Center opened March 1 in the Diocese of Gary.
The 19th such facility to open in Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan, the center serves young pregnant women who lack resources and support.

"This ministry is very much needed in Northwest Indiana," Gary Bishop Dale J. Melczek said at the dedication ceremony. "Every human being has value, but how do we act on that? You're helping those in difficult situations. This is not just professing faith, but action."
