Every year around Mother’s Day in order to honor all the wonderful mothers, RITAS Ministry, Aurora Central Catholic High School, and others have partnered together to hold a baby shower for the Illinois Department of Corrections Babies Behind Bars Program.
In 2008 the “Baby and Mom” program celebrated its first anniversary giving qualified pregnant mothers the opportunity to build that “social bond” between a mother and her newborn child. This program allows a mother to keep her newborn child under a safe and supportive environment, which builds for a strong family foundation that can continue upon release. These women have chosen “life” for their babies rather than the easier choice of abortion.
If you or your group would like to partner with us please contact Linda at RITAS Ministry.
