I had referred clients to Peace River and had them tell me they were taken care well. We were basiclly a pregnancy center. Referring for adoptions, OB/GYN care and of course free pregnancy testing. We also provided clothing for the new Mothers and their babies. I am a retired PA, I worked in OB/GYN surgery for over 15 years in the Kissimmee/ Orlando Area. I've also worked the ER on many occassions. I have experience in female crisis situations. Would love to give back to the community now that I am retired a little of my time if I could help someone through a crisis period.
