Today, somewhere on the Eastside of King County, a woman will discover that she’s pregnant with a child she wasn’t expecting. When she consults Google for information about pregnancy services near her, she will find no fewer than 13 abortion clinics in her immediate vicinity. What she will not find is a single life-affirming pregnancy center.
Research shows that 84% of post abortive women report that they felt abortion was their only option. With 13 abortion clinics, no pro-life services, and a whole lot of pressure and fear, it’s not hard to see why. In times of crisis, proximity is everything.
Now, through your generosity and God’s provision, we can stop hoping that these women will beat the odds and travel over 30 miles to our centers; we’re bringing hope and healing right to their backyards.
Because of the faithful donations of people like you, we were able to purchase an additional mobile medical unit to reach women on the Eastside with pregnancy testing, ultrasound appointments, STD screenings, and other life-affirming resources they would not otherwise have. We are currently giving the unit a bit of a facelift, but it is our sincere desire to have it fully staffed and in full-time operation by January of 2019.
The mobile unit is just one of so many ways the Lord is using Care Net of Puget Sound to shine light and hope into the communities we serve:
• Our Smart Programs are in more than 37 local schools reaching over 9000 students with education about sexual risk avoidance and sex trafficking prevention.
• Nearly 3,000 clients a year are participating in our parenting classes and learning necessary life skills to become the parents their children deserve.
• Our Healing Tide abortion recovery program is seeing unprecedented numbers of registrants who come to receive healing, restoration, and freedom in Christ.
• And still, more than 97% of the women who enter our centers and receive prenatal ultrasounds choose life for their babies.
It is a blessing and an honor to serve our clients, and to creatively strategize ways to meet the needs that continuously arise in a broken world. But we cannot do it without your support. As our work expands, so do our expenses. Your monthly donations allow us to plan and budget for the days ahead. When you become a monthly donor or, in Care Net language, a Life Steward, we know that we can rely on your gift and plan accordingly.
To our current Life Stewards, we thank you for your faithfulness, without which, none of our programs would even exist. As we look at expanding in the days ahead, would you prayerfully consider whether or not the Lord is calling you to a modest increase in your current monthly donation? Even a $5 monthly increase would be a tremendous blessing to us.
If you are not presently a monthly donor, would you consider taking the next step by committing to give whatever amount, small or large, you feel led to contribute? The tide is turning in favor of life, and as it does, we want to be be ready to meet the needs of those who need us most.
The Lord is at work in and through Care Net of Puget Sound. We praise Him for the great things He has done and look with eager expectation toward a future full of harvest as we share the stories of His transformative work in the lives of those touched through your generosity.
