As part of the desire to illustrate faith in action, the Diocese of Cleveland is offering a new series called "Embraced by Grace." The series will show how the Catholic Church and social service organizations founded with Catholic values journey with people facing a myriad of challenges.
The first episode features Zelie’s Home, a Cleveland-based community where women thrive as they embrace motherhood. Some of the women struggled with whether or not to terminate their pregnancies. They also dealt with homelessness, unemployment and other challenges.
Zelie's Home helps them prepare for motherhood and a brighter future by offering parenting, financial and career assistance. In the accompanying video, one expectant mother shares her story.
