Coming soon: St. Gianna Crisis Pregnancy Home


St. Gianna Crisis Pregnancy Home, with the blessing of Bishop William F. Medley, plans to open its doors in Bowling Green, Ky., on Holy Spirit Parish property in 2024. St. Gianna CPH will fall under the umbrella of the Diocese of Owensboro Catholic Charities. As Catholic Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all donations made to St. Gianna CPH are tax deductible.

We are a Catholic, Christ-centered program whose mission is to help the pregnant woman who has chosen life for her unborn child, through support, resources, and educational, financial, emotional, and spiritual guidance. We will strive to provide her with a safe, nurturing environment where she can achieve a healthy pregnancy. This is a working program so all residents will work or go to school unless medically restricted, furthering their journey along the path towards independence. Our motto is: Defending Life with Love!

The home is currently undergoing repairs and renovations to make it into a safe, tranquil refuge for a woman experiencing a crisis pregnancy with no means of support. We do not accept government funding so are seeking private donations and applying for grants to fund a dual-purpose dining/classroom space.  This addition will enable us to more effectively achieve our goals for these women.
