Having attended several events for The Northwest Center I have heard from the people that they serve the great good they are doing in the lives that they touch. For those who have not been able to attend one of those events let me assure you that your donations produce incredibly beautiful results!

I've been both a volunteer and a donor as a Georgetown student these past few years, and the incredible work done by the Northwest Center is exactly the passion and care for the health of women and their children that is needed to make all of our pro-life advocacy into an actual culture of life. Those that want to make a meaningful impact on the lives of women in need should look no father than the Northwest Center.

I've donated to The Northwest Center for the last 3 years. I feel confident supporting them because I know what a valuable resource the Northwest center is to women in the local DC community.

I really don't have much of a story but our family has participated w/ the Northwest Center on several occasions in terms of participating in their events such as fun runs/walks. My husband and I have attended their balls. We support Northwest because they are a pregnancy aid center and help young mothers keep their babies, learn job skills and lead productive lives while raising their children. What could be more important? As a mother myself of 4 children I know how challenging it can be to raise children in this day and age. I have a supportive husband and there are still trials and difficulties families face. Having to do it as a single parent is way harder! All the events that we have attended are well organized, fun, meaningful and well supported. We intend to continue to contribute to this nonprofit.

I found out about the Northwest Center through a relative and I am so impressed with the entire, comprehensive program which the Center follows. All of the clients are required to participate in programs which will build their character, improve their skills, and teach them to be independent and not rely on government handouts. It is such a joy for me to provide the resources to save babies and change so many lives. I have met many of the residents and volunteers and am struck by the love the staff and residents have for each other. They operate more like a family then an organization and I consider it a privelege to be part of their family.

It is run by compassionate and dedicated staff and volunteers who care about the strength and long-term future of the entire family, both children and their parents. It is a truly inspiring organization.
