Marisol Maternity ministry has recently become part of the Catholic Charities’ continuum of care. The ministry has been operating for 17 years and currently runs two homes for up to 14 pregnant women in Arvada. The homes fill a specific need for pregnant women needing a nurturing environment. Marisol Maternity provides Christ-centered homes with life coaches and house mothers that help address the spiritual and material needs of the women that come to them. We are excited to have them become part of the Catholic Charities family.
Celebrate the Joy of Life!
