This Year's Project: Build a Better Boutique
About Our Organization
As a 501(c)3 organization we train volunteers thru Heartbeat Academy's Love Approach to successfully operate our Center. Services are free and confidential with the support of area churches and individuals like YOU! ABC's mission is to help women and girls who are in a planned or unplanned pregnancy. We Care. We Listen. We Help. We network clients with CASA and Domestic Abuse and are a member of the Child Advocacy Team.
We provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to enable their child to be carried to full term and make constructive plans for their future. Counselling for male counterparts is available as well and much needed post abortion counseling. As a pro-life group, we celebrate LIFE for ALL. We assist with adoption information and referrals.
Providing the Community Hospital and Tri Valley with newborn layettes for those in need include an invitation to visit our center for future needs. A baby boutique with clothing thru size 2T for boys and girls as well as the necessities like diapers, wipes, toiletries, baby food, formula, blankets and baby furniture items from bath tubs to cribs. We encourage donations of clean, gently used clothing, new diapers, wipes and toiletries for our baby boutique.
The need is GREAT as we continue to support not only Red Willow County but have clients and donors scattered throughout Southwest Nebraska covering Dundy, Hayes, Hitchcock, Chase, Frontier, Furnas and Phelps County, as well as clients who come from the counties of Northwest Kansas. If you have a heart for the unborn and would be interested as a volunteer please call our office.
Current Project: Build a Better Boutique
As you can see from our video pictures we do not currently have adequate space to safely store baby furniture items.
We are looking to rent an additional room to keep all of our baby furniture items easily accessible for our volunteers to show and our clients to be able to choose from. Donation dollars were down from last year due to Covid. As we followed the State regulations our office was mainly closed and open by appointment only. Those who did venture out to our Center definitely proved the need was still great. There is a room available for our use but that increases our out of pocket costs. With YOUR support we can provide this much needed space.
Also your donations will help provide the NEW baby layettes we supply to the Community Hospital and Tri Valley Hospital in Cambridge.
We would like to "thank you" in advance for your consideration to help provide the needs of our community.
New Location & Grand Re-opening Build A Website
An unexpected had to move this year brought many out-of-pocket expenses. Including moving, deposit and increased monthly rent, carpet cleaning and painting the new location. Needless to say the search for a new location took several months but we are thankful for God's provision as we are now located at 322 Norris Avenue Suite 2-12 on the 2nd floor in the Masonic Temple Building. Main Street location yet still confidential access.
Our baby boutique supplies need replenished as although our office was officially closed, as requested by the state due to covid, our 24 hour hotline still served those in need who requested assistance. Along that line, we need to update some of our educational resources to take care of our clients on a more efficient individual basis. We currently have a local Facebook page to encourage and serve clients as well as the general public. We are considering building our own website to help service folks which would include embedding our educational video resource series to help them know what to expect during pregnancy and how to care for the baby for those first time Moms.
Lastly we need to purchase new banners, business cards, appointment cards, address labels for brochure handouts etc to update our new address. We continue to log yearly totals of numbers served, their educational needs as well as baby supplies used to help them maintain a healthy happy baby. All this costs dollars and we currently operate on donations from individuals, churches and businesses. Of course numbers of those helped and supplies used increase annually. We wish to "Thank You" in advance for considering helping us to meet the needs of new Moms and low income families through out the Southwest Nebraska area and of course McCook.
If you wish to donate from home feel free to donate to us thru Paypal using our email address which is: email@example.com or personal checks can be sent to PO Box 42 McCook.
Better yet feel free to drop by and get a look at our new facility at 322 Norris, Masonic Temple Building Suite 2-12, Second floor, elevator available the day of Big Give, November 5, 2020 from 1-4 PM.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO THE ABC PREGNANCY HELP CENTER AS YOU HELP US HELP THOSE IN NEED IN THE COMMUNITY !
Update our DVD & Curriculum Library for our Clients
To provide a more complete service to our clients, we would like to start a DVD library of ongoing curriculum for these young moms. These training videos and their matching completion sheets will help first time moms and young moms to maintain their families from pre-natal care thru the teen years. The several series we are reviewing break these down into sections, pre-natal, birth and immediate infant care, growth development care. Our clients are in much need of these educational training videos and with your support you can take an unspoken part in building up our young families thru our office which is dedicated to helping these young families however we can at no cost to them. Please help us make McCook an even better growing community by supplying the proper educational training that is needed. Thank you in advance for your donations.
