Pregnancy Aid uses its resources very well. Expenses are carefully thought out, and all of its services are free. Each year, about 1000 new women sign up for assistance. Volunteers offer emotional support, pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, maternity clothes, baby clothes and supplies, and helpful information to women facing unplanned pregnancies. Great organization.
As a volunteer at Pregnancy Aid, I've seen the look on a clients face when they realize that someone really cares about them and their situation. Most of our clients just want someone to listen and offer real encouragement and help in changing their lives. We seem to have become a small beacon of hope on the east side of Detroit. I'm proud to be a volunteer there. Helen Roarty
Pregnancy Aid remains a dedicated grass-roots program in Detroit helping the most vulnerable people of our society in a loving and caring atmosphere. They not only assist in material aid but they provide an enriching educational program.
When I became pregnant I was scared. I was looking for someone just to talk to, to assure me that if need be I could have this baby on my own. And then I found pregnancy aid. The moment I walked in the door I could feel the love that just oozes from the staff here. I was embraced, treated with respect and for the first time in a long time I felt safe. I soon began to volunteer at P.A. I knew that this place was making a difference in our community and I wanted to be a part of that. 3 years later, Pregnancy Aid has become my second home!!!
Pregnancy Aid is such a great organization. I have been a volunteer there off and on for many years and the people involved with PA are kind, considerate and care so much about the clients. The clients are very appreciative and many value an organization where they can attend classes for fellowship while at the same time receive help with baby items. Having the ultrasound machine available for pregnant mothers to experience the first sign of their babies life has been so awesome. I believe many women have chosen life over abortion after having an ultrasound. Keep up the great work PA and God Bless all the volunteers and clients.
I am continually impressed with the professionalism of our volunteers, staff, and president. This organization provides helpful advice and aid to pregnant women. They use their resources to wisely to maximize their services to our clients.
Awesome pregnancy center. Resourceful, kind volunteers. Caring environment and always welcoming. Everyone goes the extra mile to make sure women and babies are taken care of well.
I am in my 5th week of my first (unplanned) pregnancy. When I found out last Saturday, I was in complete shock and panic. A friend brought me to Pregnancy Aid to have a confirmation test, and they instantly helped me, made me feel welcome, understood and not judged... which was very important for me. I felt comfortable with the professional and knowledgeable staff, who guided me through what to expect while in early pregnancy. Their ultrasound tech was very sweet and informative, and I look forward to seeing her again before I make my first OBGYN appointment. If you aren't comfortable talking with friends or family members straight away, or don't know how to share the news of unplanned pregnancy, Pregnancy Aid is an excellent place to start :) I look forward to assisting in spreading awareness and fundraising for this organization.
I have worked with Pregnancy Aid of Eastern Wayne Co. as recipient partners of the Detroit Area Diaper Bank - they provide critical services to women in need and help them be healthy, prepared, and educated as they become Moms. I've been impressed with the warmth, compassion and commitment to vision of everyone I've had contact with in the organization, and I know the women they serve are so grateful for their help and support. The Diaper Bank is proud to support their good work in providing the basics to the women who have come to them for help.
