Center Programs include:
Earn While You Learn
Through EWYL, clients earn Baby Bucks to use to purchase items they need from our centers’ resource rooms: maternity/baby clothing, baby furniture, formula, diapers, etc. by attending individualized educational modules. Clients learn about pregnancy and fetal development, labor and delivery, infant care, and healthy choices. As they meet one on one with a trained volunteer, issues and concerns specific to their needs can be discussed.
The items they can “purchase” with their Baby Bucks, both new and used, have been donated by individuals in the community.
Sexual Integrity Program
Clients with negative pregnancy tests are offered a seven week program designed to promote a chaste, pure lifestyle until marriage.
The value of sexual abstinence is discussed as well as the risks – physical, emotional, and spiritual – of being sexually active outside of marriage.
Program to for new and expectant Dads to equip them in fathering skills and decision making.
Mission: To challenge, encourage, and equip men to succeed in their God-given role as Fathers.
The program offers group educational classes as well as optional individual mentoring to prepare new Dads in the practical and spiritual aspects of Fatherhood.
Sexual Risk Avoidance Program

Restore (formerly Pure Grace 101)
A post-abortion support and Bible Study for women struggling emotionally with a past abortion.
Following abortion, many women experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. For many women, however, the crisis is not over. Months and even years later, significant problems can develop.
Women who have experienced abortion may develop the following symptoms:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Difficulty Bonding with Partner or Children
- Eating Disorder
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, Restore offers confidential, compassionate support designed to help women and men work through these feelings. You are not alone.
If you wish to begin the healing process from a past abortion or abortions, we offer one-on-one and group Bible Study “Forgiven and Set Free”. The 11-week study is offered at no charge. Deciding to seek help may be one of the toughest decisions you have to make, but it may be one of the best.
To talk to someone about issues from a past abortion, please call Ruth at 717-372-2845.
All calls are confidential.
