Below are some exerpts from a story on the Mother Teresa Home in the July issue of the Western New York Catholic:
After a year of cleaning, carpentry and more cleaning, Cheryl Calire will open the Mother Teresa Home, a place for women who have chosen life to live. As the Director of the Diocesan Office of Pro-Life Activities, Cheryl encourages pregnant women to say ‘yes’ to life. The pastoral mission of the Mother Teresa Home is to promote the safety, stability and well being of women who have experienced or been exposed to pressure in regards to their pregnancy. Through partners such as the nearby Response to Love Center, the women will take part in educational programs and career counseling, allowing them to transition back into the world with marketable skills. Cheryl and her husband David have signed on for a five year term as executive directors.
