The Wright Connection is a Community Gathering Place Created by Help Pregnancy Crisis Aid
At the Wright Connection, HELP is able to host educational programs on issues impacting families, as well as serve as a relaxed, coffee house-style atmosphere where mothers can develop friendships and connect with resources and experts from the Grand Rapids area.
Partnered with Spectrum Healthier Communities, MSU Extension, YMCA and others, HELP provides our community with professional support and education. Classes offered include: Living Well; Preparing for Childbirth and Caring for Your Baby, Nurturing Families, and Cook Learn & Grow. Please visit us today for more information regarding our classes.

Wright Connection history:
Located in what was once a vacant and run-down space adjacent to HELP'S office's, The Wright Connection is now a bright, fresh and contemporary place where women and families being served by HELP can meet, relax, learn and get to know one another. The Wright Connection also connects families with experts and resources in the community through classes and programs on relevant topics including parenting, nutrition, lactation, childbirth, child development, faith formation, post-abortive support, and postpartum depression. Opened in June 2011, The Wright Connection is named after Susan Wright, a wife and mother who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1999. Her family and friends, together with HELP Pregnancy Crisis Aid, supported the creation of The Wright Connection in honor of her life and her pro-life values.
