  • Caseworker

    Lourdeshouse Maternity Home opened its doors to unwed teenage mothers in 1959 with the belief that every unborn child has a God-given right to life, as well as human rights. Lourdeshouse now operates as a 24/7 residential program for adult women with staff who are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment in which residents have the stability to plan for their future and that of their infant, by taking steps that may be uncomfortable or unknown to them. It is a vessel in which to mentor, guide, teach and/or coach pregnant and postpartum women the necessary parenting and life skills they will need as they work towards independence and self-sufficiency.

  • Part-time - English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher

    Location: Immigration & Refugee Services

    The ESL Program has immediate openings for Part-Time English as a Second Language Teachers.  Though our classes our leveled, ESL teachers should be comfortable working with all levels of ESL learners.  Curriculum materials are provided, but teachers are expected to adapt and supplement our standard curriculum based on their learners’ goals as workers, family members, and community members.  Volunteer classroom aides are used to assist in all of our classes, so teachers need to be comfortable managing volunteers in the classroom.  Teachers also participate in program improvement and professional development activities.

    ESL Teachers typically teach one or two classes, for a total of 8 or 16 hours per week.  The class schedules are set for the duration of the year at the beginning of each program year, so the teaching schedule is rigid.  Though most teachers choose to teach one class, it is possible to maintain a two class schedule as we run two shifts of classes (morning and evening).  All activities, classes and staff meetings/training, occur on Zoom at this time.  Teachers should be prepared to return to face-to-face instruction when it is deemed safe.  All teacher resources are housed on a Google Drive, so teachers should have familiarity with Google Suite.

Imagine your dream student - someone who is bright, inquisitive, kind to others, and comes to class eager to learn. Well, that is Koffi. He first came to my ESL class in May of 2014. He had only been in the United States for about 6 months at that time.

For many people, those first 6 months can be overwhelming and hectic, but Koffi’s spirit is indomitable. He came to class every night ready to learn and in a short time he found a job. Even after a long day of working hard, Koffi would come into class with a smile on his face. He greeted his fellow students with a smile and was ready to learn.

After being in the country for a little over a year, Koffi decided he would like to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). He took the initiative and researched his options before deciding on the program at HACC.
Koffi continued with his English studies right up to the time his CNA class started at HACC. I was sorry to see him leave, but so happy for him.

In June of this year Koffi graduated from the CNA Program at HACC. We are all so proud of Koffi. He has been such a positive influence on all of us, staff and students alike. It is impossible to look at Koffi’s smiling face and not want to smile right back, he is that full of kindness and hope. I am so glad he was my student and I feel certain that he will do even more amazing things in the future.

Catholic Charities Adoption Services and Specialized Foster Care not only provides foster care and adoption services, but it also helps adoptees and their birth families to connect with one other through Search services. Nearly 50 years ago, Tina was an accomplished athlete who found herself pregnant while pursuing an advanced degree. With housing and supportive services from Catholic Charities, Tina made the difficult decision to place her daughter for adoption. Following the adoption, Tina pursued her career as an athlete, coach, and business administrator. While she was confident that she had made the right decision, Tina constantly thought about the daughter she had placed for adoption and wondered about her well-being. She eventually made attempts to find her daughter through various sources and by updating her online information in the event that her only child might someday want to meet her. After several years, Tina had come to the conclusion that meeting her daughter was just not meant to be.
This past year, Tina’s daughter, Beth, contacted Catholic Charities with a request for information about her birth parents. After talking with Beth and encouraging her to pursue the search, Catholic Charities was able to connect Beth with her birth mother. The two later traveled to meet each other, and Tina was given the opportunity to meet Beth’s husband and daughters. Tina was thrilled to learn that she was a grandmother, but she was most happy to hear that her daughter had loving adoptive parents who had given her a good life. Tina later wrote to Catholic Charities that “I think someone did a lot of praying and the prayers were answered.”

A native of Puerto Rico, Maria* moved to Harrisburg with the dream of building a bright future for herself and her baby. While working to gain her bearing, Maria was kicked out of the house in which she had been staying, rendering Maria and her son homeless. Maria had very few options, as she had not yet secured a job, childcare, or private housing. In March 2017, Maria and her two year old son were welcomed into the Interfaith Shelter.
Upon entering the Interfaith Shelter, Maria immediately began building the skills needed to obtain self-sufficiency. The first challenge to overcome was Maria’s limited English proficiency. Determined to improve her English, Maria enrolled in ESL classes at the Tri-County Adult Learning Center, and she began practicing her growing language skills with residents and staff at the shelter. Maria also enrolled in a workforce development program offered through the PA Department of Human Services, working to develop marketable skills and gain permanent employment. Although many of the area’s transitional housing programs were completely full and had long wait lists, Maria eagerly applied to the YWCA Transitional Housing program. She knew that, with determination and hard work, she could build a better life for her family.
As she was nearing the end of her stay with the Interfaith Shelter, Maria was accepted into the YWCA Transitional Housing program and was assured that a room would soon be available. In order to keep Maria on the path towards success, the Interfaith Shelter granted Maria an extension until she was able to move into the YWCA. During her stay at Interfaith, Maria successfully obtained childcare, enrolled in a cash assistance program, improved her English proficiency, and began developing employment skills leading to a new job. Maria has served as an inspiration to others at the shelter that any barrier can be overcome.
