Our Center has faced a fair share of battles the last few years and your support will allow us to continue serving women and families who choose to protect innocent life.
March of 2020 our Center fell under state Covid-19 regulations and had to essentially shut down direct, in-house support to our clients. We were able to continue with virtual education and counseling, and contactless material pick-ups, but this strained the relationships our staff build with vulnerable clients and they definitely felt the loss. Covid also cancelled our annual fundraising banquets and events for the following three years. The loss of this direct donor support was felt immensely. Our Center relied heavily on state funding it received through the MN Positive Alternatives (to abortion) Grant for our client education, material support (such as diapers/wipes, food/formula, cribs, car seats) and overhead to simply keep the lights on.
Then came May 2023, when Governor Walz decided the State of Minnesota would no longer support the protection of innocent fetal life, and he, with his Senate and House, voted to eliminate the funding for the Positive Alternatives Grant beyond June 30, 2023. The very grant we have relied so heavily on.
And finally, as some may have heard, just four days after losing our grant funding, our Center suffered a huge building disaster. Water damaged much of our client material supplies, ultrasound machine, and the building structure itself, to the point that an immediate decision to relocate was needed. Whether this location is temporary or permanent remains to be seen, along with the services and support we can provide, as we are working on a very short-term budget that is unsustainable without monetary donations from supporters like you.
So, we ask that you please take this consideration to heart, whether you can provide a gift to help us continue with our good works and ensure women and families can provide for the beautiful life they chose to protect.
