The COURAGE Program is run from Our Lady At St. Germaine Parish in Oak Lawn. It is a program for single-mothers with infants and children under 6 years of age. We provide a variety of services, including all necessary baby-care items, baby food, formula, diapers, free counseling, educational programs, monthly meetings, social opportunities, and financial assistance. We also have food, vision and dental programs.
The COURAGE Program is totally dependent upon donations. Through the generosity of so many, we have been able to provide these services since 1980 and have been able to help over 15,000 women and children.
