As many of you know, I have been working with Acts413 Ministries to help the HOPE Pregnancy Center with their events, web presence and fundraising. This ministry of People for People Inc. is very near and dear to our hearts!

When I was pregnant with my first child at a young age, I was asked by my family doctor if I wanted to talk about "my options". I knew what this meant. Having been raised with the knowledge that abortion was murder, it struck me so deep that a doctor who took an oath to "do no harm" was suggesting that I might might want to kill my unborn child. How casually this came out of her mouth! Needless to say, I did not even need to think about it before I answered. (Not only did my parents and church instill this in me, my school had the Alpha Pregnancy Center, now AlphaCare, come to my school and show videos that explained the beauty of the unborn and the horrors of abortion.) That precious first child of mine that the doctor thought I might want to get rid of, will make me a grandmother in March!

HOPE offers counseling before & after abortion, educational visits like the kind I received in school, free pregnancy test and the most important tool for preventing abortions - free ultrasounds! I am very excited about this new type of peer-to-peer fundraising and we are hopeful that it will enable more people across the Delaware Valley, who value life, to learn more about this important work as well as support and share with others. Please consider giving and setting up your own fundraiser! (It's a great way to reconnect with others you may have been out of touch with the last year! ) Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Thank you!

Join our networking effort to help support this vital work by becoming a fundraiser today!

The HOPE Pregnancy Center was founded by People for People in 2009 to provide counseling support and services for women, men, and their families facing unexpected pregnancies. The need for pregnancy related services has never been greater and our amazing HOPE Pregnancy Center continues to provide vital services every day!

​We appreciate the gifts of our generous partners that support the community surrounding our center. Your tax-deductible gift will be used to continue to offer the free services our clients receive at the center. If you have any questions about giving to the HOPE Center, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our goal for 2022 is to raise enough to hire a part-time employee to assist in running the center and serving the community more effectively. Covid-19 prevented us from having our 2020 Fundraising Banquet. That is when we began Multiply HOPE, a fundraiser to equip and empower you to help us raise the critical funding that HOPE needs to operate the center. We now have an even more engaging and effective tool to empower you to create your own personalized fundraiser to help the HOPE Pregnancy Center. This is a great way to get the whole family involved and solidify their convictions regarding the sanctity of life. Centers like HOPE are more important than ever. They are the lifeline to mothers not just needing help to have their babies but raising them with caring support and loving help.

Every dollar counts and helps us serve our community, and any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated. You can exponentially quantify your impact by becoming a fundraiser and reaching out to your friends and family. Will you join us to Multiply HOPE
