“I speak not for myself but for those without voice… those who have fought for their rights… their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated.”

-Malala Yousafzai

The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is scared and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. This belief is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.

Father Taaffe Homes protects the dignity of young mothers and their babies by providing welcoming, comforting homes which inspire hope for the future, self-confidence and independence. Young women are cared for in a safe and nurturing environment from which they can build their futures and the future of their babies.
