St. Elizabeth Coleman Adoption Services
St. Elizabeth's Pregnancy and Adoption Services was founded in 1915 by the Mother Theodore Circle #56, the first Daughters of Isabella circle formed in Indiana. Coleman Adoption Services began during the Civil War helping “wayward girls.” The agency was named after Suemma Coleman in 1894. Since the early 1990s Coleman has specialized in the adoption of hard-to-place children.
In 2004 the two agencies came together to form St. Elizabeth/Coleman Pregnancy and Adoption Services to offer a full range of services. We are committed to providing support, compassion and professional assistance to pregnant women and families facing adoption and parenting decisions.
St. Elizabeth/Coleman is one of six Catholic Charities agencies of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law. St. Elizabeth/Coleman is a United Way member agency and relies on contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and government grants to continue its mission of providing every child with a healthy, loving family.
