What a wonderful ministry! I had the joy of being the nursery coordinator at APO for a few semesters during my time in college. The volunteers are so invested in the lives of the girls, guys, and babies who come on Thursday nights. They have counseling and discipleship, a shop where girls can spend their "Mama bucks" that they earn for things like bringing their folders and memorizing bible verses on the things they need like clothes, blankets, etc. This ministry is a powerful force in BCS and an awesome outreach to young moms!
It was an absolute joy to have the opportunity to volunteer at APO. The full-time staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and focused on the goal of APO. It was well-coordinated and truly fun. I got to help take care of some of the cutest infants in BCS, and knew it greatly enabled the mothers to receive some much needed time on their own. I love the mission of APO and am fortunate that I was able to spend fun-filled hours there.
We LOVE APO dearly!! We adopted our son through them and have had many friends before and after us use this agency as well. They love everyone involved so well - the child, the adoptive family, the birthfamily---no one is left feeling alone. They prayed with us and helped guide us when we were feeling lost or anxious. We would recommend them over and over and over again. They truly seek to share Christ and His love and it is evident. We feel beyond blessed to know those people and call them friends.
It was a pleasure volunteering at APO as a psychologist! I could get closer to the wonderful work they develop helping moms and be in contact with lovely people, especially the coordinator, Diane, always gentle and kind! Andrea
Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach: making a difference in this world one LIFE at a time
The tagline for this ministry says it all. APO is making a difference. This group is primarily committed to serving Christ and the love that flows from that commitment is undeniable. Though it has been ten years since we adopted our daughter through APO, the memories are remarkably vivid. The director told me then they are dedicated to helping each precious birthmother make the best decision for her child. Whether the birthmother opts to raise the baby or place the baby with an adoptive family, APO provides resources to support the decision.
APO gives hope where there was none, and they do so with loving compassion and integrity. APO does indeed change lives, one life at a time.
APO is phenomenal! The people that work and volunteer there really love the Lord and are excited about loving others. I volunteer with Mama Club and they do such a great job trying to teach, love on, and help these teen mamas. I've seen lives changed, people come to Christ, mamas get educated, and life-long friends made. APO saw the need in the community and with the help of God, they met it.
Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach is a wonderful organization!! Our student group, Pro-Life Aggies, has babysat during and provided dinner for their Mama's Club in the past, and we've seen first-hand how caring they are toward these young mothers and their children. APO is doing such great things for mothers in College Station/Bryan!
The kids at APO are absolutely precious, and the staff is so selfless and performing such an amazing service to a community that really needs it. I am thankful to them for everything that they do.
I started volunteering at Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach the fall of my freshman year of college. APO has many wonderful programs for those needing support during/post pregnancies. I am blessed to volunteer with such a compassionate organization, and watch many lives be touched. God is truly working through APO!
We went through the process of adoption through Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach (APO) and couldn't me more pleased. The adoption process has its beautiful and awkward moments, and APO helped make it comfortable and smooth. They are an extension of our family now and we are so blessed and grateful for them being a huge part in taking us from a family of three to a family of four! Thanks and God Bless You Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach!
Our hearts are full and our family is complete. APO truly has the best interest of the children at heart. They guideded us and the birth mom step by step trough a stressful and emotional process. They were always available when we had questions or concerns. We appreciate that they take the time to build a one on one relationship with the adopting families and with the birth moms.
Amazing! My wife and I adopted both of our children through APO. The staff at APO does an amazing job helping birth parents and adoptive families through one of the most difficult and happiest times of their lives. They show kindness and compassion to everyone they work with and are both professional and loving at the same time. We love sharing our kids adoption stories and APO is a huge part of both. We have referred several friends to APO and will continue to do so.
We adopted our son through APO and had a wonderful experience with them. The staff is top notch, and we can't rave enough about what a great organization they are. We highly recommend for anyone adopting or looking to place/release their child to adoption. Such a loving organization in every way--looking to comprehensive needs of the children, birth parents, and adoptive parents as well.
APO helped through the hardest thing I'll probably ever have to go through! The lady I worked with was so much help. They helped me with a lot, from counseling to helping financially. From phones calls, text, emails, and meetings, they always check up on you to make sure things are going ok. They always offer to come to you instead of going into the office. I will forever be grateful for their help. Absolutely loved APO!!!
I was going through a very tough time, and this organization held my hand the whole way. I experienced working with Karla whom by the way is sweet as ever. Karla made me feel confident that I was making the right decision. I remember when I came home from the hospital from having my baby I was really depressed, and I was refusing to talk to anyone because I just give my baby boy up for adoption. Karla would not stop calling until I talked to her and then she offered me to come to the office to talk. Without APO I don't know where I would be today. I am very graceful for having them when I was at my lowest, and I will always remember the great staff.
I volunteered there off and on for several weeks and was also treated with love and warmth. APO cares so much for their clients.
i love APO. I go as often as my schedule allows. It makes you feel good to know that you are helping out, while getting some much needed play time with children. I really support the work that APO is doing in the community as well as enjoy the time I spend there.
What a great organization! I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the staff. Their genuine concern for the young families is evident in everything they do.
I am a international student at TAMU. And I worked at Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach from Feb 2013 to Aug 2013. It was really wonderful experience. My work is to processing the donations to help people who come here can find things they want quickly and easily. At here I worked with other kind people who at first teach me a lot about how to do these works. And it is really good that you know your efforts can really help other people.
