About Us

How We Started

Our center was started by six men and women who had a heart for those in our community struggling with pregnancy related issues.

Some of us have had experience with similar organizations in the past. Some of us have experienced difficult situations related to pregnancy and abortion. We come from many walks of life, and believe that we represent a cross section of our community.
