From humble beginnings to today, Women’s Hope Medical Clinic, is celebrating 35 years of life-saving ministry this month. The nonprofit is thankful to the community for the support over these many years.
“There are so many lives in Lee County and beyond that have been positively impacting by the services rendered at Women’s Hope,” said Executive Director Daria Monroe. “It is with joy that we share this celebration with our community to display the way the Lord has used supporters for the good of thousands through the last thirty-five years.”
On Aug. 28 from 6-8 p.m., Women’s Hope will celebrate during their annual fall fundraising banquet to be held at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. Former executive director Kirk Walden will be the featured speaker.
Women’s Hope started in Auburn at the home of founders Janet and Tom Wadsworth to meet the needs of women facing crisis pregnancies as Sav-A-Life Auburn/Opelika. As one of the first pregnancy resource centers in the country to become a medical center, thousands of lives have been impacted since it’s official incorporation in 1983.
“As a faith-based nonprofit organization, we provide free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and prenatal care along with parenting and life skills classes and a fatherhood program, where individuals earn free material resources to care for their babies,” says Monroe.
For the future, Women’s Hope plans to meet changing needs by including counseling and mentor resources as well as begin to facilitate adoptions.
