A Volunteer and a Patient

Why I Volunteer with Hope I’ve been involved with Hope Women’s Centers ministry from its beginning, when the church I attended in the mid-1980s sponsored a baby shower for Hope, along with our pastor and his family providing a place in their home for a pregnant teen to live.  Since then, I’ve participated in many of Hope’s activities, fundraisers, and events over the years, but because I had a young family of my own to care for, I couldn’t get involved on a week-to-week basis. …

Mom, Dad, and Baby

Previous patients Natasha and Gregory recently brought baby Kayla with them when they came back to Hope to introduce us to their daughter. They gave us permission to share their story because they hope it will help others processing what to do in an unplanned pregnancy and will encourage those that give to the work of Hope Women’s Centers that their time and donations really matter. Natasha shared:  I felt very nervous and excited at the same time. A part of me just couldn’t believe the test …
