There are dozens of ways you can get involved in the ministry alongside of your local Pregnancy Resource Center. We would encourage you to call or email the director of the center you wish to become involved with. They will be able to plug you into the ministry in any number of ways. We have had people serve the PRC by volunteering to counsel and pray with the women coming to the center, by volunteering time for service projects around the building, students have volunteered by being a liason to their high school or college, by raising awareness and support at their church, by hosting their own fundraiser, by forwarding our emails to their friends, by posting support and by "Like"-ing us on Facebook, by donating their birthday to us, and by committing to work for us. How can you get involved? Call or email the director of your local center to find out.
We need churches. We exist as a parachurch organization, simply aiming to accomplish something that is hard to do inside of the church. We want people with a passion for the Lord to serve alongside of us. Our hope is that churches will support us so we can plug the women back into the local church where they will be cared for. One church has offered a room in their basement to house the HOPE program for one of our centers - which allows that church to invest deeply in the lives of the women we serve and love. Other ways your church can become involved is through spreading the word - through hanging posters, making an announcement from the pulpit, or even allowing someone from our organization to come and speak at your church. We also would love to get youth groups involved in any way we can. We've also had churches do fundraisers for us, where all the money they raise goes towards our ministry. Be creative with these fundraisers - from bike-a-thons to swims to runs, maybe arm-wrestling contests - How can your church get involved?
There are numerous ways your corporation could support the ministry of a local Pregnancy Resource Center. We have many businesses that have partnered with us for a joint event which allows advertising at a relatively cheap cost. We have had corporations make In-Kind donations that will help serve the client or beautify the facilities we use. Some corporations offer Matching Gifts for charitable giving as well. We hope that the partnership with local companies just helps all involved. If your corporation is interested in partnering with your local PRC, please simply contact your local director.
