Promise of Life Network's mission is to honor Christ by empowering mothers to choose life, educating individuals and families about healthy relationships, and providing medical services, material assistance, and spiritual support. We provide local families with pregnancy testing, ultrasound scans, and STD testing and treatment. We also provide parenting education and material support to families with children ages three and under. Further, we provide healthy relationships education to students in local public schools. In the last two years, we have begun providing life-affirming help to women worldwide. All of our services are provided free of charge to individuals in need.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
The two programs that will benefit most from donations are our Alpha Omega Center (medical) and our New Beginnings (parenting) divisions.
When a young woman is facing an unexpected pregnancy, she often finds herself unsure of her next steps. Alpha Omega Center provides the information and encouragement she needs to choose life for her child. Our team stays in touch with the mother throughout her pregnancy to ensure that she is able to access health care, social services, or other resources to have a healthy pregnancy and delivery. 95% of at-risk mothers choose life after meeting with our client advocates and receiving an ultrasound scan.
Parents, caretakers, and guardians are also able to enroll in our New Beginnings parenting program. This program is available to expectant parents and families with children under age four. Families attend weekly one-on-one parenting classes tailored to fit their needs and, in exchange, earn needed items for their children. Families are able to choose the items they would like for their child from our Parents’ Shop. Since the COVID pandemic we have allowed for virtual visits when preferred to keep our little ones and their families safe.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
We invested in a new marketing campaign to reach women considering abortion. This campaign has been very successful and may result in a need to be open more hours. We are also seeking to add well-women's services to those most in need this year, which will require additional staff time and other resources.
Additionally, due to the increased economic needs in our community we are concerned about accommodating all of our parenting families with in-office in-person appointments. The formula shortage and the increased prices on items like wipes and diapers are causing more local families to be in need.
