We have been exploring how we can be more effective by collaborating with other area pregnancy centers.

We often meet with Pregnancy

Resource Center of Grand Rapids and Muskegon Pregnancy Center and Alpha Grand Rapids. The question being asked is
"How can we be better together?"

What We Have Accomplished So Far
Prayer: joining staff and directors in prayer
Collaborative Task Force: made up of representatives (board & staff) from each center

Items Under Consideration
Level of Partnership

We deeply desire to build relationships and become a quality resource to churches and schools. We want to provide education and

services to their students, 

parents, and congregations.


Why We Want to Raise Awareness

  • 65% of women who have had abortions state they are Christian.

  • Christian teens are as sexually active as non-Christian teens.

  • 1 in 3 women experience abortion by age 45.


Questions We Need to Be Asking 
How will you respond to the next unplanned pregnancy?
How would you respond to the woman or man who comes to you and say they have had an abortion or are considering an abortion? 
How are you helping parents communicate Biblical sexuality with their teens and preparing teens for healthy relationships?
We believe people can be sexually and relationally healthy. Do you know that we provide teaching and resources to equip them to live healthy lifestyles?


Specific Needs

  • Open Doors to Church and School Leadership

  • Volunteers

  • Curriculum/Resource Costs

  • Special Event Costs


BestLife {hero} mens program keeps growing, Our trained male advocates meet with men during the pregnancy test, and continued care throughout pregnancy and into parenthood.

When a survey of 250 women was done, 81% of the women stated they aborted due to the influence of the man in their life.

The problem is not men, but their lack of knowledge and encouragement. We are here to educate, support and encourage men to be the best man, partner, and the father they are becoming.
