THE WOMEN'S CENTER - Ongoing

In our nation approximately 1 million abortions are performed each year. The aborted babies aren’t the only victims. Their mothers, who in many cases were pressured into the abortion, are also victims. Sooner or later they experience horrible grief and depression. At The Women’s Centers we try to enable women struggling with problem pregnancies to give birth and save them from grieving later.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - A receptionist is needed Tuesdays and Wednesdays at our Evergreen Park office. For more information, call us at 708-320-4066.

We are in need of 5 car seats for 20-40 lbs., 3 infant car seat/carriers (by law all car seats must be less than 7 years old), 4 high chairs, 3 strollers, 3 baby carriers, 4 cribs, 4 dressers, 3 bouncers, 2 exersaucers, and 4 baby swings. For our address where you can deliver them to us, or if a pick-up by a volunteer is needed, please call at 773-794-1313.
