HERE WE GROW AGAIN!

We are constantly striving to listen to the Lord as we ask Him, “How can we better serve our community?” At a Board planning session a little over a year ago, our Board of Directors made a pledge to offer every service that Planned Parenthood (the nation’s largest abortion provider) claims to offer, with the exception of abortion, and in a Christ-honoring environment. Our ultimate goal is that women will have a real alternative for excellent healthcare, offered with compassion and confidentiality.

Isn’t it going to be wonderful to provide THE PLACE where a woman can receive comprehensive services that provide for her medical, emotional and spiritual needs ALL under one roof?  AND, to invite her to a safe place where she will encounter those who welcome her with open arms, free of an agenda to profit from her decisions and ready to serve without judgment regarding what circumstances brought her through our doors?

We’ve spent the past year working on our credentialing for AAAHC accreditation (gold standard for health clinics), and our last step is to find a place to birth the medical center, the Downtown Women’s Medical Center. We’ve found an ideal location that is only 1.2 miles from our current downtown location, (which served women from 216 zip codes and 30 counties last year). Once built-out it has room for 4 counseling rooms, 5 exam rooms, 2 sonogram rooms and a large educational/training area. We’re under contract to purchase this building and are in the middle of a Capital Campaign to raise $3 million.

WE NEED YOU!

Our Calling:  “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for now is the time to seek the LORD, that He may come and shower His righteousness upon you.”  Hosea 10:12

Our Goal: To serve the North Texas community through a first-rate, fully comprehensive women’s whole health clinic as a truly incomparable alternative to Planned Parenthood.
