The Pregnancy Help Center opened its doors in July 1986, It was founded by a group of concerned citizens in the Fort Worth community who saw a need to provide information and counsel to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. Today, the PHC ministers to the whole woman, her children and her family. Through our various programs, PHC endeavors to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the women in our community.

Notes from the Director
     Looking back at the past year is such a blessing to all our staff and volunteers. We saw miracle after miracle from God. We look forward to the new year with anticipation of watching His hand in saving more lives through our work at the Center.
     The first week of this year was full of awesome opportunities to minister to pregnant women. One client is living in a half-way house for addicts. She is now clean from drugs and two months into a pregnancy. Having already aborted five times, it would have been easy for her to make that choice again, but someone suggested she visit the Pregnancy Help Center. After a sonogram showed her the baby was moving, and hearing the baby’s beating heart, she was touched by God to choose life for her child. Please join us in praying for her and all our clients. So many women need to understand that their choices have a ripple effect and make a difference in so many lives. My desire is that every client we minister to will become a picture of the Proverbs 31 Godly Woman.  
     So you see, I have one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. My heart is full of gratitude to all of you for making that possible. Thanks to the Women’s Ministry (in several churches) that have given the Center a baby shower, to all the partners that have supplied our needs in one way or another and for those who gave financially to help us meet our budget.
     Jesus did not come to make God’s love possible, but to make God’s love visible. Our volunteers work five days a week to be the visible love of God. Thank you for helping our ministry.
     Happy New Year and God’s blessing to you and your family.

His for Life
Polly Isinghood, Exec. Director 

We are so thankful for our volunteers!  Pray for them as they minister to young women who need help.

Our new volunteers in training are: Rayvon Walker, Brenda DelaCruze and Emily Blair.
Volunteer positions open: Saturday once a month
Cleaning crews to clean about every six weeks.

During our first 18 months of opening the Center, 35 babies were born and we had 13 professions of faith. Each year those numbers are growing. Twenty-five years later nearly 40,000 clients have walked through our doors. This year we provided help for over 300 babies and 50 women accepted Christ.
