First Way Pregnancy Center is very grateful for the grand funds received from the Arizona Life Coalition. The funds were specifically used to enhance our women's bilingual peer counseling program. On average, we serve 430 women each month. The center is open 48 hours a week. Previous to receiving the grant we had peer counselors for the 48 hours in English, but only 42 hours in Spanish. We were able to extend the bilingual availability to cover every hour we are open.
For 43 years, First Way Pregnancy Center has provided free resources which support life affirming choices. This is accomplished through a loving and non-judgmental approach with peer counseling, education and practical services. Our free services include: Pregnancy Tests, 3D/4D Ultrasound, Peer Counseling, Education Classes, Community Referrals and Material Support. 3 years ago we launched our men's program and we provide peer counseling (man to man/one on one) and education classes for father's of the babies.
As a privately funded organization we host an annual fundraising gala. This year's the gala is themed Restoring the Family and our keynote speaker is Rick Santorum. It will be on Friday, October 2nd and for more information you can call the center at (602) 261-7522.
