Ruth VK Pakaluk (1957-1998)
Visitation House was envisioned by Ruth V.K. Pakaluk, mother of seven and dedicated supporter of life in Massachusetts. Ruth recognized the urgent need to establish a home for pregnant women in Worcester County, one that would surround them with a culture of life, allowing them to choose life for their babies and for themselves. Ruth died heroically at the age of 41 before her vision became a reality but her passion for helping women with unplanned pregnancies inspired those around her to fulfill her dream.
We offer a program which provides women with unplanned pregnancies a path to cherish and sustain the life of their babies.
We do this by providing each woman a welcoming home and opportunities to develop the skills, confidence, and self knowledge necessary to create a beautiful future for her and her baby.
