LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez on Aug. 19 described a new residence in the city for homeless pregnant women and their children as a “beautiful work of compassion and care for our most vulnerable neighbors.”
He took part in the blessing of Harvest Home’s new Pico Home.
“It is with great joy that we witness the opening of Harvest Home’s second residence for homeless pregnant women and their children,” he said.
“Let us continue to pray for these women and their children and let us continue to commit ourselves to building a Los Angeles where every life is cherished and protected,” the archbishop added.
Harvest Home provides case management, therapy, parenting classes and more to homeless pregnant women who have nowhere else to turn.
“Each year, Harvest Home transforms the lives of up to 30 women and their families through its residential program,” said a news release about the organization.
