Willow provides them with a medical grade pregnancy test, an ultrasound to date their pregnancy and confirm that their pregnancy is viable, STD testing and options consultation in a compassionate, confidential, non-judgmental manner.
Willow's Mission: To be the first step for women facing an unplanned pregnancy, transforming their fear into confidence, by addressing their physical, spiritual and emotional needs, and equipping them to make healthy life-affirming decisions.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
We serve women in a peaceful, non-judgmental, yet medical and ethical setting, offering them:
- Pregnancy Testing
- STD Testing - her health is important to us and if she has a surgical abortion, an STD would increase her chance of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which could cause her reproductive issues down the road
- Ultrasound to date her pregnancy and to confirm viability
- Options Consultation - this provides her with information on Parenting, Adoption, Abortion and Holding Time (an option for women who need time to get their life in order - a loving couple will care for baby up to a year with visitation worked out between couple and mother)
We also offer post-abortive healing for those who may be struggling with a past decision of abortion.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Although our donors have been very committed and generous this past year, we were unable to have our annual in-person fundraiser in the fall, as well as our inability to speak at churches and to community groups to share our mission with the community and grow our donor base.
The pandemic has also put our building renovation and plans to expand our services on hold, but we are very much looking forward to serving the women and families in many new and necessary ways to fulfill their needs in the near future!
