I served on the Women's Care Center Board for three years after my life's schedule changed where I was unable to volunteer anymore. This ministry is so giving to our community. The volunteers and board members are dedicated to helping others and changing lives. As a volunteer, it was wonderful to see expectant mothers come in and learn how to take care of their babies and take care of themselves while they were carrying their baby. Ladies of all ages can come in without any chance of being judged for whatever may be going on in their life at the time but instead, have the opportunity to talk with someone who genuinely cares for them at desires to help them through what their trial may be by helping them make wise choices for them and their future. This center is a MUST for our community.
I am very glad that the Center is in our community and am proud of the work they have done to prevent abortion and help families and individuals. The only negative I would mention would be the lack of leadership at the Board level. There seems to be little vision and from what I have heard for several years, there is disention among the members, which keeps the Center from growing and fulfilling it's true purpose. But the employees and volunteers continue to do a good job from my perspective as a donor.
If you are needing someone to talk with or help finding out the facts about pregnancy, parenting or abortion, any and all of us that volunteer and the staff are waiting your call. We can help you with emergency items such as pregnancy test, infant formula, diapers, infant furniture and so many other things. We are the only organization in the Sevier County area that offers these services along with classes, and many other items free of charge. This is such a need in today's economic climate. I am blessed to be a part of this wonderful non profit organization.
My wife has been involved with the center in a number of ways the past several years. I didn't realize there was such a broad spectrum of services the Women's Care Center provides. I also didn't realize there were so many needs in our community until she got involved.
Good job WCC !!!
I volunteer at the Center once a week and feel like I am doing an important part toward sharing the love of Christ Jesus with some that would otherwise not necessarily see that love or hear about it. Some may need to know if they are pregnant, some need food, diapers or clothes for their children or their grandchildren or other relative they are now taking care of. Sometimes they need to know how to take care of themselves or their children and we can help through our parenting classes or sexual integrity classes. And sometimes all they need is someone to talk to or just to listen to them and we can do that by just being there.

I learned about wcc at FBC .a young mother shared her experience at womens care center. Her story touched my heart . It was then I made
the decision to become a part of this ministry.
Volunteering at has been a blessing to me . also although my children
and most of my grandchildren are grown,the parenting classes have
taught me a lot . I often tell my daughter that Iwould have handled some
parenting skills differently had I had the knowledge that we are able to
share with the girls and women who visit us at WCC
I LOVE MY WORK AT WCC. IT IS VERY REWARDING.
