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.

From what I truly believe, the Board needs reorganization. Some people have been there too long and need to step down and let others in the community who are better qualified assume leadership.

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.

I have talked with lots of young women and heard their personal testimonies of how Women's Care Center has changed their lives and their children's lives for the better.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would suggest a much larger place in a more visible area of the community. We could help so many others if we had more room.

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing a young mother decide to keep her baby rather than have an abortion, take care of the child, get a job, and go to school to make a better life for herself and the child.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a larger space in a more convenient location (maybe on the trolley line for those without their own transportation) with more parking and more facilities/equipment in order to better serve the community.

The Women's Care Center of Sevier County, Inc. has served the needs of women and their families in Sevier County for 21 years. Any woman who thinks she might be pregnant may receive a free pregnancy test, peer consulting, accurate medical facts, including physical risks as a result of an abortion procedure, information about abortion alternatives, and kind assistance with any other information needed to make an informed, healthy choice about a pregnancy. All services of the WCC are free.

Material assistance at the Baby Boutique, continuing education in the parenting program, community referrals for other personal needs, and friendships established with staff and volunteers are added benefits received by WCC clients. Each client is assured of privacy and confidentiality.

I have seen marvelous changes in the mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of many clients through the years. The parenting program gives confidence to the soon-to-be and new parents. They look forward to the challenge of parenting because of the knowledge they have obtained.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The WCC needs to have a 2,000 + square foot one-story facility to enable this ministry to meet the needs of more clients (more volunteers and an increase in daily hours of operation), to provide ultrasound services for clients, to establish a mentoring program for young fathers, and to open a small store for gently used baby items (for the public). The building location needs to be near a trolley stop and a large parking area would also be needed.

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.

I have seen lives change at this center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We need a bigger building so we can have an ultrasound machine. also a larger parking area as parking now is sometimes very difficult if there are several cars there.

I have seen many women and families helped by the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Women's Care Center. Every situation is handled in a professional manner and all services are kept completely confidential.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the lives of women and families changed for the better. Through the decisions they have made and by the parenting skills they have learned.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have better parking and a larger facility. The board also needs to get their act together and some that have been their a while need to step down.
