We are thankful that every day for over 41 years we have been entrusted to continue the mission of PDHC to rescue lives and impact families for generations. And we are thankful for each of you who make our mission possible so that we can continue to love, serve, and heal the broken, hurting, and hopeless who reach out to us for help.
Thank you for being our prayer warriors. We see hearts and minds changed every day through the power of your prayers from our Monday morning prayer requests regarding the women and families we serve. You have prayed over hundreds of intentions this year.
Thank you for sharing your time and talents through volunteering. Volunteers on our 24/7 hotline show love and provide reassurance to women in crisis, often as the first point of contact. Nearly 40,000 calls, texts, and chats have been made to our hotline already this year.
Volunteers in our four pregnancy centers serve with hearts full of kindness and compassion for women facing personal challenges with an unexpected pregnancy. This year, over 2,000 individuals have been served through nearly 6,000 visits to our centers. Volunteers in our Family Empowerment Center help to empower and strengthen new moms and dads and continue to nurture relationships with families. More than 7,500 online and over 800 in-person parenting education classes have been provided along with over 2,500 visits for much-needed baby items. Thousands of blankets, hats, booties, and more have been tenderly knitted, quilted, sewn, and prayed over by talented individuals and gifted to new moms. Volunteers in our abortion recovery program this year have helped over 80 individuals receive hope and healing in their recovery journey. Countless hours have been provided by individuals serving in an administrative capacity, helping us with mailers, bottles for life, events, maintenance, and center projects. We are so grateful for about 150 dedicated volunteers who have gifted nearly 11,000 hours of their time so far this year to further the mission of PDHC.
Thank you for your individual, church, and community partners’ gifts of financial support which make it possible to provide four pillars of service at no cost: Intervention services through the hotline and pregnancy resource centers, Extension services through the Family Empowerment Program, Prevention services through the Common Sense Culture program providing sexual risk avoidance education to middle and high schools students, and Recovery services through the abortion recovery and pregnancy loss program. Your gifts have helped provide over 1,000 ultrasounds so far this year, resulting in 803 life decisions. More than 3,500 students have been impacted by healthy choices education in about 30 schools. More abortion-vulnerable and abortion-minded individuals have been reached through increased marketing efforts online, and through billboards, wall murals, websites, and social media. Additional key staff positions have been added to meet the growing needs of our clients.
We are thankful for an amazing team of passionate individuals which God has called to serve and further the mission of PDHC.
Thank you for your continued partnership. Together, we are making a difference every day, in every heartbeat, of every life saved.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
