Dear friends,

As we finish the 40 Days for Life campaign we turn our attention to those in our community who have been deeply impacted by the ripple effects of this pandemic. Many in our area are now unemployed or under-employed and struggling to make ends meet. Furthermore, many of the schools, daycares, programs, and resources that may normally be there to assist these families are now limited or closed.

Quite frankly we have an obligation to act swiftly and reach out to our neighbors in need.

That’s why I’m eager to announce the brand new Community Response Fund, a special way to help pregnant mothers and families who have been deeply affected by this crisis.

While our main focus will continue to be working with abortion-minded women, this program goes even further to help any pregnant woman or family with children 5-year-old or younger.
