Dear Friends and Supporters,
We'd like to share a little bit about the ministry of our Heart & Hands Pregnancy Care Center. Our former director, Joanne Coker, passed away last January, so we have been reorganizing to carry out the mission of helping families - supporting life.
We have recently moved from Central Park to Hoquiam, which is more accessible for many families. We are located at 2638 Simpson Ave. on the corner of Simpson and 27th, across from Subway. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 32, Aberdeen WA 98520. Phone: (360) 532-1104.
Heart & Hands is run strictly on private donations. We receive no government funding. We are an all-volunteer, private, non-profit 501 c3 corporation. We consist of a 7 person Board, with our new director and volunteers, who do a wide variety of jobs. Our new Executive Director is Dede Higginbotham. Be sure to meet and greet her. Although no one is paid a wage, we still have expenses such as extensive building remodeling at this time, monthly expenses such as insurance, utilities, and maintenance, along with supplies such as diapers, and formula etc. etc. Our goal and hope for the future is to acquire an ultrasound machine, so that mothers can see it is a baby they carry, rather than just a "blob of tissue."
We need the help and support of our community, especially all who support the sanctity of life. Most of all we need your prayers for wisdom and guidance as we minister to families. We also need financial help, donation of supplies, and more volunteers to help with various things so that we can increase the hours and days that we are open. We are currently open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. We'd be delighted to give you a tour if you stop by the Center.
Heart & Hands is an inter-denominational, Christian organization. We work hand in hand together to protect life. We soak our work in prayer and God is blessing our efforts in so many ways! This work is really not just ours. It's God's work, and we get to help!
Thank you for reading this update, and for being our faithful supporters! Without you we could not do what we do!
