Give Life by Giving Your Time and Talents

One thing I wish people knew about the work in the (Pregnancy Resource Centers) is it really takes a village to run each Center. Whether it’s lifting the staff up in prayer each day, donating funds or baby items, volunteering, laundry service, supplies for the nurses and much more, the needs are great.
