I have been a volunteer for five years at the Hope Pregnancy Center in Oklahoma City. I selected this organziation because I believe in the work they do and it is important that this is a grace gift to the clients who come into the center for services. OBHC does not charge for any services they provide. Every client is handled with confidentiality and in a non-judgemental; non-discriminatory manner. Through my years as a volunteer I have witnessed lives changed in the men and women who come through the doors of Hope Pregnancy Center. For some, it is the first time they can find hope and acceptance in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. It is wonderful to see joy on the face of a young woman who has just experienced an ultrasound and she sees her baby for the first time. The volunteers are amazing as they walk with their clients through the pregnancy and often the parents will continue with the parenting education program that Hope Pregency Centers offer. By attending parenting classes for the first year of their child's life; parents earn the privilege of shopping for baby supplies in the center's baby boutique. I am honored to be able to serve an organization that desires to encourage, affirm dignity and self-worth to the clients who seek our services every day.
