Over the past several years, we have been able to partner with Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center and work together to meet the needs of several young ladies in our community. I honestly believe that a couple of young ladies would have chosen to have an abortion if not for our partnership. Pregnancy Care Centers are on the front lines, working with women providing pregnancy tests as well as initial counseling. Maternity homes, such as the Liberty Godparent Home (LGH),are able to come in to provide housing and long term care for these women who choose life for their children. What an exciting partnership!
We are excited to come alongside of the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center and host the Bridge Event. It is our goal that through this event, maternity homes and pregnancy centers will come together to better meet the needs of the women and children we serve.
The Bridge Event is a networking event geared towards gathering and training professionals working with unplanned pregnancies. We, along with the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center and have invited Maternity Homes and Pregnancy Centers in Virginia and several from surrounding states. Throughout the day, we will be hosting sessions such as avoiding burnout, utilizing social media, and how to network together. During the lunch hour, we will be shuttling people to LGH and allowing them the opportunity to tour our facility while they enjoy a complimentary box lunch.
If you work with unplanned pregnancies as a professional or volunteer, we would love for you to make plans to join us on November 12th from 9am - 4pm at the Liberty University Hancock Welcome Center in Lynchburg, VA.
