19th Annual Fundraising Banquet

Being a medical clinic is costly. We do not receive any government funding. Individuals, churches and businesses with a heart for those in need are our source of income. All our services are free of charge and include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, childbirth education and more. Our clients have this to say:

“I felt comfortable and grateful for the caring staff. This was a place where no one judged me.”

“I was glad to receive good and valuable information. The atmosphere is warm and uplifting. I was able to relax. It was as though my counselor really knew me.”

We want to continue and you can help.

2021 Baby Bottle Drive

Begins Mother’s Day ends on the Fourth of July

This year’s theme for our bottle drive is “Freedom” “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13 (NIV)

This is what we do at the center, we serve with love. And, here’s a picture of me taken in 1941 my humble beginning. I was an unplanned pregnancy. When my mother and father found out about me, they got married. That was eighty years ago. Times have changed. People facing unplanned pregnancies in today’s world can choose to end the pregnancy, legally.

We want to help them. We are privileged to be able to offer free ultrasounds to Mom’s and Dad’s experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We want to show them life inside the womb. We need your help to do this, so please give. We are a Christian Ministry and a medical clinic. We do not receive grants from the government, you are our support.

This year we are getting baby bottles to some of our churches. But we recognize that we are still living a hybrid existence and some of you are still streaming your worships. So we are presenting this chance for you to participate on-line.

In God’s love,
Gail Gardner
Executive Director
