CAPS is a phenomenal organization! The wonderful staff helps you evaluate your options, your plans, and your future while, wat the same time weighing the risks involved and sharing all the resources available.

Each volunteer has a passion to serve God and the community. College Area Pregnancy Services truly does make a difference in the lives of young women [and men]. They did mine!

I have seen the hours spent by volunteers to help women, men and families in a time of need when they are not sure where else to turn. The compassion shown and generosity of time in the clinic is well above average. I hope that more people turn to this clinic when needed without hesitation.

We have supported CAPS from the time it was just a dream of a few faithful women. We have watched in amazement as it has grown and have seen many women and couples help in times of great distress and need. CAPS is such an important organization and our favorite place to donate.

I was approached to be a CAPS Board Member and happily served for 5 years. It was a great experience working with the other Board Members to help steer CAPS into the future.

CAPS has been an amazing organization to watch grow from the very beginning. The love they have for the women in our community is joy to see. Always working with the clients in the area they need most support; either emotional, physical or spiritual.

College Area Pregnancy Services (CAPS) is a great place to volunteer. I get to share with the parents their first moment of seeing their unborn baby/babies through Ultrasound. I cry, laugh and pray with them for a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. It's a great honor to be a CAPS with many other nurses and volunteer who have the same heart of serving women in their most happiest and vulnerable time. God bless CAPS. :)

CAPS has been my favorite place to work. I had such a rewarding job knowing I was helping so many people. CAPS is a great place for women to go who aren't sure if they are pregnant or who know they are pregnant and want assistance. For free a woman can get: to talk to a lay counselor, a pregnancy test, educational information, an ultrasound, referrals, baby items etc. The women who see us are grateful for our services and are thankful we are there to help.

My experience at CAPS was nothing short of amazing. When you look at that pregnancy strip and see pregnant -- and you are single and it was not in YOUR plan, you can easily freak out. CAPS is a wonderful warm place to go and just talk if you want to - like FREE counseling, it is so great! I remember the first time I went to talk and I just sat and vented and talked for an hour, crying and discussing my feelings. They have so many educational tools so you can explore different options for you and your baby. I did not feel pressured in any way and only felt supported and loved by these people who did not even know me, but knew alot about the situation I was in and truely wanted to help. The people who work for CAPS have a passion for helping women with unplanned pregnancies and they do their job out of true love!! I definately recommend for you to just stop by the office if you are in crisis or just have any questions at all and are looking for support!

I initially called CAPS to see if I could make a donation of baby items...and then proceeded to inquire about volunteer opportunities. After attending my volunteer training and meeting wonderful staff and volunteers, I knew for sure that I was in the right place. The moment you walk in the door of CAPS, you know you are absolutely loved and appreciated. The volunteer receptionists, nurses and counselors are the most loving, compassionate women and the mission of CAPS is evident to anyone who walks through the front door. The amazing volunteers are there to meet each client where they are at and love them unconditionally. I am so proud to have the opportunity to be part of such an amazing organization.

I have been volunteering with CAPS for over a year, now, and have found this organization to be an inspiration. The care and love extended to all who enter the clinic, the professional teamwork of the staff & volunteers, and the attention to detail of every phase of this operation attest to the high standards that are achieved at College Area Pregnancy Services. I have found that assisting the community through the services offered here has been very rewarading. Women who have come through these doors find compassion and loving hearts to welcome them and so many have expressed their gratitude that we were here for them! This clinic is so supportive and makes every effort to inform, educate and train every volunteer to be well-equipped and lovingly able to minister to others and I am just happy to be a part of it!

I have known about CAPS through my church for many years and knew I wanted to be involved in supporting its efforts to help women with alternatives to abortion. The volunteers treat their clients with love and support and so many of them make the decision to carry their babies to term because of the love and support they receive. The provide free pregnancy tests and free ultra sounds and they offer counseling for post abortion clients as well. This is an amazing organization!
