The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
LifeCare Pregnancy Center is a Christ-centered ministry providing services that promote a Biblical perspective on sexuality, pregnancy, and the value of human life.
LifeCare hopes to see lives transformed through Christ in sexually broken and abortion-vulnerable communities through programs of Prevention, Intervention, and Restoration programs.
Abstinence Until Marriage is the Prevention program. This empowers young people to make healthy physical and spiritual choices for themselves. This program helps a student take a hard look at the damaging effects of premarital sex: STD's, unplanned pregnancies, ruined reputations, and the resulting heartaches.
Our Intervention program meets men and women where they are. Meeting the physical needs of clients opens the door to show the love of Christ and minister to each person spiritually. Most of LifeCare's clients are college age, African American, single, and pro-choice. The average clients say they became sexually active between the ages of 16 and 19 and are not using contraceptives. Approximately 18 percent of clients are males.
The Restoration program is designed to assist in the emotional and spiritual healing of men and women who are experiencing Post Abortion Stress Syndrome.
