APO has guided us through two adoptions and we highly recommend working with the agency. Each staff member is so kind and responsive and truly loves what they do. We have really seen how wonderful each person is there, and we have seem firsthand how they have made a difference in so many families lives, both adoptive families and families raising their biological kids. We know the agency not only does everything exactly how the state requires, but that they also go above and beyond to prepare families for whatever comes their way.
I've been volunteering with APO for 2.5-3 years now. They truly are a second family I love the mission that they carry out in the community and the way that they lovingly treat every person that walks through their doors!
I started with Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach (APO) as an intern during one of my final semesters at Texas A&M. I quickly fell in love with this organization, the detication of their staff, volunteers, and amazing birthmoms. This organization has heart and it shines through in their selfless outreach to the community. After my time as an intern, I continued on as a weekly volunteer. I took joy in seeing the growth of APO and continuing to support them in any small way. I believe my experiences at APO are unlike any other nonprofit I have worked for in the past. This organization will continue to thrive, as they stay true to their core values. Thank you APO for the impact you have made in so many lives, as well as my own.
As an intern, I loved seeing how the staff at APO truly care about every single person that comes in contact with the organization. Their doors are always open to help with every aspect of adoption and parenting, and you can see how much their service impacts the people they work with.
APO was amazing during our adoption journey. We immediately felt great about the smaller scale of APO and the very personalized, family feel. They are truly a resource for both families that choose to place and families that choose to parent. Not only did they educate us on open adoption, but they held our hands through the journey of waiting, being matched, and finally, meeting our son! They continue blessing our lives by providing counseling and support to our birth family, and if we needed them, I know they're just a phone call away. I love APOs heart to support local families and the children that come into this world. We would wholeheartedly recommend them and would have no hesitation about utilizing them should we choose to grow our family by adoption again.
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!
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.
