Hands of Hope Pregnancy Center
The Hands of Hope Pregnancy Center is a Christian ministry that upholds the sanctity of human life by providing support and encouragement to those facing challenges of unplanned pregnancy, promoting sexual integrity, and offering post abortion support.
Hands of Hope Pregnancy Center's 35 volunteers, along with our financial supporters, allow services to be provided free of charge. With volunteer peer counselors, we offer pregnancy tests, options education, & post abortion recovery support to clients. Through what is shared in a caring & confidential setting, clients are able to make an informed decision about their baby & their future if facing an unplanned pregnancy.In our Earn While You Learn Parenting Program women & men can learn basic parenting skills for taking care of their new baby, as well as strategies for discipline, building a strong foundation for all home relationships, & understanding setting boundaries for their 2-18 year olds. Each individualized class lasts from 30 to 60 minutes including time for personal interaction with the instructor. Participants earn access to our clothing room which offers disposable diapers, car seats, maternity and baby clothing & supplies.Creating Positive Relationships is the other program we offer to area school classrooms grade 6-12. As a whole person adolescent health curriculum, it advocates for abstinence from sexual relationships until marriage as the healthiest decision--physically, mentally, socially, & emotionally. Students are actively engaged in the learning process by our instructors who provide strategies for goal setting, setting safe limits for physical affection, resisting peer pressure, information on STDs, & avoidance of alcohol & drug abuse.
