Dear friends of HELP,

It’s been another wonderful year at HELP.  We’ve enjoyed tremendous success in saving the unborn as well as helping mothers have and raise their children.  We’re able to do this only because of you, our generous donors, and a marvelous cadre of volunteers and employees who give tirelessly of their time and talent.  Without all of you, HELP simply wouldn’t exist and many women would be much more likely to resort to the unthinkable solution to their pregnancies.

There are needs in our community and amongst our clients which HELP is not serving and we’re considering ways to offer services we’ve been unable to provide in the past.  For instance, many of our clients have fallen victim to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).  In fact, sources indicate there are over 20,000,000 college students with STDs in our country today!  Think about that.  We are working to make basic testing services available to our clients in the future.

We also want to be capable of assisting clients who have taken the abortion pill (RU-486) with the reversal process.  More and more abortions are being conducted this way and with the “morning after pill” which can be purchased over the counter at local pharmacies, including those located in popular grocery stores.  APR (Abortion Pill Reversal) is and will be evermore important as this method continues to replace surgical abortions.

Last but not least, we find that too many of our clients are virtually unaware of how their bodies work.  They need education and guidance in this regard and we are at the fore amongst potential sources for this information.  They come to us with these issues at hand and who better to give them the knowledge they need with a Catholic perspective?

In order to address these needs our board is considering expansion of our facility in the context of a long range plan for our development in the community.  No secret, this will be expensive! So please, please be as generous as you can this year.  You always are!! Above all, we wish you and your families a happy and holy Christmas.  God bless each and every one of you.
