The Pregnancy Resource Center of Southwest Florida exists for women with unplanned pregnancies. Our mission is to prevent abortion and present eternal truth. Last year, 177 babies were saved, and 61 men and women placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. The Gospel was shared 761 times and 639 ultrasounds were performed.
We have a staff of 18 to include nurses, sonographers, a medical doctor, and managers. As well as 35-40 volunteer advocates who dedicate their time to help save babies and souls. Our clinics are in north Naples and in Fort Myers. The women (and men) that walk through our doors, often are feeling scared, alone, and fearful of the future.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, along with training, advocates will minister to these women, listen to their stories, pray with them, and show a way forward.
We educate them about adoption and share with them that we partner with three different adoption agencies. We also equip, educate, and empower the mom to choose life for their baby and show her there is a way to keep and parent this baby. We offer a program called Earn While You Learn. Advocates will commit to walking beside them for up to 15 months. They will meet weekly, preparing them for childbirth and parenthood. Often, as they develop a deeper relationship, the advocate can share Christ and help them grow in their relationship with God. Each time they meet with their advocate, they earn baby bucks which she can redeem in the Baby Boutique. The boutique is filled with brand new items such as clothes, car seats, strollers, diapers, and diaper bags which are all donated by individuals or churches.
I recently came across this quote and I couldn’t agree more, “A sense of purpose, is an incredible alarm clock.” Each one of us at PRC feels an incredible sense of purpose every day as we devote our time and energy to ministering to the needs of these men and women and experience the true joy when a woman chooses life for her baby.
