HOPE WOMEN’S CENTER

OUR VISION

Value life. Love well.

 

WHO IS HOPE?

Hope Women’s Center was founded in 2006 and as a non-profit Christ-focused, missional pregnancy center. We desire to reach teens, women and families experiencing unplanned pregnancies and provide them with compassionate assistance and accurate information to empower them to make healthy, informed pregnancy and lifestyle decisions. In 2008, we moved to our current location among medical offices and completed the medical conversion in 2011, giving us the ability to serve women through ultrasound. Hope Women’s Center continues to witness the importance of technology – when a client sees their child and hears its heartbeat, the decision for life significantly increases. In 2013, we began to serve the student and clients through STD testing and medication. Hope also provides one-on-one and small group guidance related to sexual integrity and post abortion healing. Clients are encouraged to consider biblical and life-affirming solutions to the challenges in their lives. All services are free and the ministry is supported almost entirely by private donations with some private foundation grants.

 

OUR STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

Hope Women’s Center affirms the following:
  • We believe God is the author, creator, and sustainer of all life.
  • We believe, promote and uphold the Biblical model for marriage and family, including premarital sexual abstinence and marital fidelity.
  • We believe Christians are called to be witnesses for the sanctity of life, to stand up for the innocent and the weak, and to reach out to those in crisis and in danger.
  • We believe life begins at conception/fertilization and is sacred throughout life.
  • We believe every pregnancy is a gift from God regardless of the circumstances of conception.
  • We believe every child is a blessing from the Lord regardless of the child’s physical and mental gifts or disabilities.
  • We believe the best interest of the mother and the child are always joined.
  • We believe abortion is the taking of defenseless human life and an attack on the image of God in the womb. (Genesis 5:1a)
  • We believe that abortion is physically, emotionally and spiritually harmful to women. An aborted child’s father may also experience significant emotional and spiritual pain.
  • We believe Christ forgives, cleanses, heals and transforms the repentant heart of a Christian.
  • We believe that placing a baby for adoption is a biblical and positive alternative to terminating an unplanned pregnancy. In many cases, adoption is also a biblical and positive alternative to single parenting.
