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.
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.
