We started our "JOY FUND" in 2021. The idea was to be able to help our clients in need with more than a pregnancy test or an ultrasound. We wanted to let out clients know that we were excited about the good news of their pregnancy. We also believe every client that walks through our door is in a special circumstance, and we would like to meet them where they are at and help them meet their personal goals. So, we would like to have a family support fund for men, women, or families who come to our center and need immediate assistance. As we provide free pregnancy testing and ultrasound, sometimes our clients face other crises. We want to provide immediate care, from gas cards, and restaurant cards, to home repairs or housing assistance (partnering with doors of Hope).
We make several referrals to local agencies for help, and the "JOY FUND" would assist people during times of immediate emergency, financial crisis, or just because they found out they were pregnant. Situations of need can — and often do — arise unexpectedly.
A client once said to us... "I remember a teacher in high school told me a story of a couple that came to his door and said they had just found out about an unexpected pregnancy. The teacher handed them a gift card and said: here's a gift card; go out for dinner, celebrate this child, and we'll figure out the details later"...
Despite our clients being in a crisis, together, we can turn those crises into a celebration of life.
