Hope Pregnancy Center Truth, Service, and Love The moment a woman realizes she may be pregnant is life-changing, leaving her heart anywhere between dancing and leaping with joy to feeling crushed with fear. No matter what her situation or reaction, it is a powerful turning point requiring her utmost attention and consideration. Whatever she chooses to do will impact the entirety of her remaining life on earth. It is an unfortunate fact of the world today that often a woman is left to make a decision without the support or sometimes even presence of the father of her child. Whether she is excited or frightened, her emotions are running high. She needs a place to go, both physically and emotionally, where she can take a deep breath and take a few minutes to pull her thoughts together to make a rational decision. If she can talk to someone who can be a sounding board for her feelings, as well as a source of information about her choices, support, and available resources, she is likely to make the best decision for herself and for her child. Hope Pregnancy Center is that place. Their core values are truth, service, and love, so their resources and programs focus on the all aspects of a woman’s life and health — physical, emotional, relational, social, and spiritual.
