Review for Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, College Station, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began to volunteer at Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach in 2010. I had volunteered at several other local faciities prior to joining APO. While the other agencies are meeting necessary needs in our community, I found that APO's philosophy and ministry mirrored my heartbeat for young girls who decide to parent their unplanned babies. The staff and volunteers become an invaluable support system for the moms and the dads. Coming alongside them and teaching them parenting skills and life skills helps these kids take control of their out of control lives. The success stories from those who have gone through the program are heartwarming and show the real value of this ministry. I am proud to be a part of this tremendous asset to our community.

Review for Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, College Station, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Aggieland pregnancy is a wonderful local adoption agency but that is not all that the organization provides for our community. Once a week volunteers from all over the twin cities of Bryan and College Station meet with teen moms to provide mentoring, parenting classes and religious education. The support given to the young moms and their partners has proven to be an invaluable resource for them to assist them in moving forward in their new roles as parents. There are also many other things that are offered at "Mama Club" as it is called. The participants gets 'bucks' for attendance and various other things that they can spend at the "'Mama Store" to buy children's clothes and other donated items. The teen moms can sign up to have a 'Mentor Mom' who will meet with them on a regular basis to encourage and teach them. I have been involved with APO for a couple of years and it is the most rewarding volunteer work i have ever been privileged to be a part of...it is just a tremendous ministry to our local community!
