To learn more about the adoption option

You Are Not Alone.

Life doesn’t always happen as planned, but you always have options. At Catholic Social Services of Montana, we can help you prepare for the unexpected—so you can make the decision that is right for you.

Facing an unexpected pregnancy can be scary and overwhelming, but it may help to realize that you are not alone. We have helped many expectant parents throughout the years and can be there for you. Whether you have questions or you just need someone to talk to, CSSM counselors are always available. If you are unsure of where to turn or what to do, we are here to listen and support you. If you’re thinking about adoption, you deserve the best help and we can guide you through that process. Our support for you is private, confidential and free of charge. You do not need to be Catholic or have any religious affiliation to receive services.

An unplanned or undesired pregnancy may feel like the end of the world. We get it! But it doesn’t have to be. We would be honored to walk this journey with you as you make your decision.

Options for You
to Consider


We offer assistance to women who choose to parent their child. We want to help you be the best mom you can be.


We help pregnant women who decide to make an adoption plan for their child. A social worker will support you from beginning to end and help you navigate the adoption process.
