The Pregnancy and Parenting Support Center is committed to offering encouragement and assistance to women of all ages who are pregnant or parenting a child under the age of 3 years.
We are an outreach ministry of interdenominational local churches which demonstrates the unconditional love and compassion of Jesus Christ in our community -- a demonstration of God's power to meet the needs of those who are drawn by God to our Agency.
While utilizing the provisions of God's people and the greater community, the CPSC will, within its ability and resources, offer physical, emotional and spiritual support as well as practical assistance.
We assist moms throughout pregnancy, and until their child turns 3. Moms participate in our "Earn-As-You-Learn" program, attending classes or completing individual learning activities in the following program areas:
Life Skills Classes
Job Skills Training
Moms earn points for each learning activity completed. Points are then redeemed in our "Blessing Room" for products needed for their babies ... furniture, diapers, food, formula, clothing, shoes and consumamables.
When I walked into the center I was greeted by a group of women, which included Christi Anne Dickson, the director of the center. As I waited for a few minutes, I watched these women interact with the families in the waiting room. They were extremely caring, passionate, and joyful. Ms. Dickson gave me a brief run through of their work, and some of the projects that are underway. These workers devote a lot of time to help women in the community that are struggling realize that they are not alone.
