Regina and her non for profit ministry has been a blessing in my family and my life. I met Regina in 2004 pregnant of my third child at 20 years old and newly married. We were a struggling young family and Regina was there to help us obtain the resources and emotional and spiritual support we needed. Regina became my mentor and friend. She provided a social outlet for this cooped up young mother of 3 through workshops and educational sessions for young mothers. She and other mentors who volunteered their time to serve young mothers visited me regularly.
Fast forward to 2017, I reconnected with Regina and learned about her new pregnancy center located in Islandia. I had a heartfelt passion to serve and give back so I began volunteering my time at the pregnancy center. I helped translate and became a pregnancy consultant. I served alongside Regina for a year and moved on to pursue a career in public service. My training ground for this field was alongside Regina. Regina continued helping my family and I with resources to provide for our growing family as foster parents. My family and I are forever grateful for the service and love Regina and her organization has provided to my family and so many other families and single mothers. Organizations like these deserve the help of the community to thrive and continue to help those mothers and families in need.

Breath of Life Center goes above and beyond to help expectant moms, moms and their babies in need. They not only provide resources to lift the burden during some of the most difficult times of a woman’s life, but is also a safe non judge-mental place to talk about the real struggles of motherhood. The office is warm and inviting and feels like home.

Breath of Life Pregnancy Center exists because of Regina's love for women and babies. This is a wonderful place for any pregnant woman, who has found herself in an unplanned pregnancy, to come and find help, strength, love and support. Regina's heart's desire is to stand alongside a pregnant woman in her need and be there for her when no one else will. Whether Regina's on the phone with her clients, face-to-face counseling, handing out resources or with them during their delivery, Regina's compassion, wisdom and love are so evident in all that she does. Breath of Life is a safe haven and a lifeline extended to the community of Suffolk County.
