Pittsburgh Women's Clinic
FEBRUARY MONTHLY MISSION
February Diaper Drive
As in past years, February will have a diaper drive to benefit our local pregnancy resource center. Let’s make a wonderful diaper mountain in the back of the sanctuary.
The pandemic has forced the Center to leapfrog into new ways of delivering services, and the Center has been overjoyed that accelerated introduction of Telehealth Care Counseling has resulted in an increase of test appointments kept from 30% to 85%!
In the 19-20 fiscal year, 163 of the Center’s client-mothers chose life, and in the first four months of the 20-21 fiscal year, 43 of the Center’s client-mothers chose life. Across the nation, the network of which the Center is a part has saved the lives of 18,308 babies in the past decade.
78% of families served are single-parent families. 40% of families served are from Washington County.
73% of Continuum of Care clients chose life.
The primary purpose of Continuum of Care is to care for clients, in terms of supplies, housing, employment, training, and financial assistance. However, we should also celebrate the joys in which we share: all the developmental milestones of our babies, but also the client who graduated from nursing schools in 2020 and the two clients who got married.
After several years of floundering, the Pittsburgh Women’s Clinic finally has a new name, “Health For Her.” Blessedly, though these years of name-identify crisis, Health For Her has never had a ministry crisis. The Center has consistently been a beacon for Life, with a continuum of care services, making certain that a family that has chosen life never feels abandoned.
