College Area Pregnancy Services is providing vital help and encouragement to people who are feeling anxious about their situation or needing help financially and can't afford the medical help they need. We provide a friend and medical help. Sometimes a person just needs to talk to someone to have clarity on what to do or where to go next. For over 12 years now, we have been a presence in the community that people can count on. I am privileged to serve in a variety of capacities and enjoy my roles. We serve and in turn have purpose ourselves. I would highly recommend our services to anyone in need of them.

Even though I was married when I became pregnant with my first child (at 19 years old) I was still scared and overwhelmed. I can't even imagine what it woud have been like without the support of my husband and family. The reality that some women really are all alone in it breaks my heart. So, I have to get the word out to everyone woman I know that CAPS is willing to be her support system and she doesn't have to go through it all on her own because we are here for her.

I have seen many friends receive love, help and healing.

Put one on every corner.

I have seen the hours spent by volunteers to help women, men and families in a time of need when they are not sure where else to turn. The compassion shown and generosity of time in the clinic is well above average. I hope that more people turn to this clinic when needed without hesitation.

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

as a donor and Board member.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate, non-judgmental, tender

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open 20 more clinics such as this all around the county of San Diego.
