Review for Gate Pregnancy Resource Center, Harrisburg, NC, USA
Having experienced a crisis pregnancy in my own life when I was 27 years old, I wish I would have known more about crisis pregnancy centers. Instead, my path took me into the doors of an abortion clinic. It would be almost 10 years later before I would ever visit a crisis pregnancy center and learn of the wonderful work being done to help women in such a position. After participating in a post-abortion program through a local center, I became a volunteer counselor. A crisis pregnancy in my own family took me away from counseling for a while. A few months ago, a client of GATE gave her testimony for Sanctity of Life Sunday at our church and that passion for these women stirred inside of me to return to counseling women in crisis.

GATE offers counseling, clothing (babies and mothers to be), classes, Bible studies, diapers, accessories and many other services to its clients.

Come and be a part of a wonderful ministry!

Though women do not just line up at the doors to freely offer this information, my prayer is that we would be given the opportunity to speak love and grace of God into their lives.
