Brought together a group of women who commonly feel judged and allowed them to be carefree in a learning encironment and bright the closer to Jesus!
I volunteer for APO at their weekly "mama's club." Mama's club is a partnership between Young Life and APO that helps teen moms in the community by providing them a meal and then teaching them about GOD and how to be a mom using Young Life college students and mentor moms. I work in the nursery watching the kids of both the teen moms and mentor moms. The teen moms are also encouraged to bring the child's father or father-figure. The founder of APO is very bubbly and welcoming.
The ladies at APO are always wonderful and filled with a desire to serve the community and the need it portrays.
APO takes the time to not only counsel women through some of the most difficult decisions they face, but support them after and beyond those decisions. They work with intentionality and a genuine heart for people. Great organization!
I've been volunteering with APO for awhile now through their Mama Club and it has been one of the best experiences I've had. Everyone is there for one goal: to help. They are such an organized organization and provide so much help to the community.
APO helped me immensely with my unplanned pregnancy 11 years ago. They provided counseling and support throughout the pregnancy & continued to do so after I placed my child for adoption. APO's ability to help me, my child, my family, & the adoptive family have been of immeasurable importance and I cannot imagine not having them as a resource. I love this outreach & all they do for our community!
I help out at Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach once a week. I am impressed with the people that I work with at the Outreach. They are cheerful and enthusiastic about helping young people with unplanned pregnancies. I like the idea that they are also an adoption agency for the young woman to find homes for their babies if unable to care for them. I feel honored to be a very small part of this organization.
We adopted our son almost two years ago through Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach. It was an amazing experience and we are so grateful for our son and all of the amazing people that we have met through APO. We have recently started our second adoption journey and look forward to working with APO as we wait for the day that we are matched with another birth mother.
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.
