I know first hand several women who have been helped by CAPS's service to pregnant women. Now years later these gals have grown into precious women who have appreciated CAPS in their time of need and their children are healthy happy children. As a board member/volunteer for CAPS since it's beginning I am proud of the work CAPS has done in our community and proud of their vision to expand and grow into other areas of our community hoping to reach out to others who need our service.

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 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 was approached to be a CAPS Board Member and happily served for 5 years. It was a great experience working with the other Board Members to help steer CAPS into the future.

CAPS has been an amazing organization to watch grow from the very beginning. The love they have for the women in our community is joy to see. Always working with the clients in the area they need most support; either emotional, physical or spiritual.

CAPS is a strong organization, equipped with outstanding female staff and high quality volunteers. The Executive Director is a woman of purpose and gratiousness, always looking to strive ahead in our community to proactively assist women facing unplanned pregnancies. I have the utmost confidence in the organization and their mission. I am proud to have them serve in my community and be a part of such a great organization.
