I’m a new client advocate this year and I love coming in to volunteer—the other volunteers are the kindest and happiest people I’ve ever met and such a joy to work with!
This beautiful organization continues to help hundreds of women each year, and I am proud to be a part of it!
As my work with the center comes up on 10 years, I have seen the growth in services at the center, and my own growth as I have been given opportunities to work with men in the mentoring programming. Being able to help families from the pregnancy to a few years after the baby arrives by giving them clothing, supplies and food. To see the need and being able to fill the need with donations is so rewarding. Recently heard a lady who had been a client 5 years ago, talk about getting past the "crisis" through PCE's support and now 5 years later was with the same man, both of them had great jobs, and she had a second child, and was so excited by her life. This is the reward you get by giving of your time, treasure, and talents to a charity that touches your heart.
I have been a volunteer at Pregnancy Center East for three years. I've never met a more helpful or compassionate group of people. The workers and volunteers are dedicate to the women, men, and babies that they encounter at PCE. I always leave my shift filled with pride for the work that we do here.
Since its founding, Pregnancy Center East has continued to offer a trusted, safe place for mothers, fathers and families who are facing an untimely pregnancy and seeing them onto a better path in life. I've been a client advocate for over 25 years, privileged to be a listening ear and an experienced professional who can unjudgmentally listen to clients and assist in addressing their concerns. I've met them even years later as they have come up to me in a public setting and hugged me with gratitude..."you were so right, thank God I have this wonderful child in my life...got the job...am now married. Can't imagine how bad life would be now if I'd made the abortion decision." Delivering much needed children's items, even to a sibling of the baby. Grateful mothers and fathers are relieved to be part of our parenting
classes. Students and clients smile, at times through tears, to learn how indispensably precious each person is and how beautiful is our gift of sexuality. A great boon to our community and solely supported by donations. Wow!
I have been a client advocate with PCE for over 10 years. I am constantly amazed by the energy and dedication of the people associated with this center to care for women and their partners who find themselves in crisis pregnancy situations. These are people who spend long hours, give generously of their time, treasure, and talent only to face negative judgement from a misinformed society. It is an uphill battle but the PCE staff plus its many volunteers and donors never seem to tire. I am humbled by it, and I see it first hand every time I step inside their welcoming door. PCE embodies what a non-profit is all about. Total concern and focus on the client (mind, body, and spirit).
Great source for educational material and training on the truth about chastity for the unmarried.
Volunteering at the Pregnancy Center for 5 years has been a very rewarding and educational
experience. We help women make informed decisions that will effect them for the rest of their lives. Choosing life and returning to thank our Center for the love and help they received
from our volunteers is very gratifying. There is a lot of work to do and more women and families to serve in our community. We are so thankful that we can offer so many services
to our clients and we continue to be trained and educated to meet those needs.
I am a former Cincinnati resident and client advocate at PCE. Now that I’ve moved to another city and am volunteering at another pro life center, I truly appreciate just how special the staff and volunteers at PCE are. Every service is performed with love and compassion. Many thanks for the opportunity to learn from and serve with the people who make PCE special.
I have been closely associated with PCE as a volunteer, a donor, and a board member for 30 years. The staff and, in particular, the volunteers are the most generous, selfless, and faithful of all the many groups and associations with which I have been privileged to know in my 83 years
My role at the Center involves mentoring the potential fathers that come to the center with their wives or girlfriends. I consider it an honor to be able to talk to the young men about making a life plan for their baby and the Center offers me the opportunity to do so.
I love PCE. !! it’s a wonderful place to donate gently used baby items and baby cloths. They make sure their clients are well prepared for their new arrival. They treat them with such love and dignity and hope for a brighter future
My mother was a young women when she became pregnant with me. She was offered an abortion, but in her heart she knew it was the wrong choice for her. I couldn't of asked for a better mom. Because of her experience she has intimate knowledge on how to help women in similar situations. By volunteering at Pregnancy Center East, she is able to help and guide women and their partners who come into PCE needing advice and help. Every life she touch, make her feel like she is making a difference. Because PCE has volunteers who are caring and understanding and willing to help, I will recommend PCE to women in need of support.
I'm a college student, and I have been able to learn so much in these 6 months since I've started volunteering at PCE. I'm grateful to have this opportunity to work with and get to know such incredible members of our community, whether they are clients or other volunteers. Whenever I walk in, I know I will be greeted with open arms, even by people I've never met!
Pregnancy Center East is a comprehensive pregnancy center that helps both men and women consider the ramifications for choosing life for their unborn baby. I have served on the board at PCE for roughly 5 years and can attest to the high quality of the staff at PCE, the compassion of all the staff and volunteers who walk with the mother and her partner through key aspects of the pregnancy and the non-judgmental environment that their clients find when they walk through the doors at PCE. Other important services they provide include parenting education classes for first time parents and material assistance after the baby has been born. When you put all this together, a mother and her family could not find a better experience.
Pregnancy Center East is a great organization staffed with amazing people who are truly geared toward helping women in crisis. It offers pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and STI testing - all free of charge! The workers and client advocates at the center are compassionate and always willing to have a conversation and discuss any client's individual situation. The center has an atmosphere of selfless service, rooted in the faith of its employees - which is truly beautiful! I would highly recommend the center based on my encounter with their people and the incredible range services they offer.
Pregnancy Center East, Has influenced so many women and men in a positive way. They provide many admirable services to promote healthy lives and families. I know from my experience as a licensed social worker that young women and men can become very anxious when they are faced with a pregnancy. If a person contacts PCE the organization will help support the mother and father with free pregnancy test, sonograms if needed, education and material assistance. I have witnessed many clients make informed choices through the counseling and support they receive at PCE. This a caring , considered and competent place for those who need help during wanted and unwanted pregnancy. I highly recommend this organization.
It is a great place to volunteer. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I have never felt that any question is to foolish. Everyone is respected for who they are. The work is very rewarding.
I love this organization! Great people that help expectant mothers. They are very encouraging and positive. They support you with whatever you need and their services are free.
Great organization that genuinely cares about the people they help. I think it is easy to forget how long they have been serving people in this community. I believe they fulfill an essential role in our society. Their staff and volunteers live out God's commandment to love their neighbor.
