As a volunteer in training I am so impressed with this ministry. They are a group of loving, caring people who place prayer as a top priority beginning every shift in prayer for everyone who will seek it's services as well as for each other. "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds..."Heb. 10:24. The staff, it's leaders and volunteers all work as a team to provide a professional clinic through extensive training, continuous education along with frequent communication. They work tirelessly to maintain a safe, clean and healthy environment keeping in mind the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of everyone who walks through their doors. The greatest gift they offer is love.

My experience at CAPS as a volunteer has been amazing! The focus on each patient that comes through our door is how can we most effectively help this individual in a way that surpasses their expectation and that they leave with the knowledge that their is someone who truly cares about them and that their life matters.

Many people in San Diego do not know about this medically licensed clinic that offers free preganancy testing and counseling to anyone. In each of its three locations, the clinics are staffed by professional, licensed medical personnel and equipped with state-of-the-art ultrasounds. The clinics are spotless; the staff are friendly and welcoming to anyone. Parking is free at all locations. After my retirment from decades of nursing in local hospitals, I am honored to be a nurse volunteer with such a top notch facility.

College Area Pregnancy Services is providing vital help and encouragement to people who are feeling anxious about their situation or needing help financially and can't afford the medical help they need. We provide a friend and medical help. Sometimes a person just needs to talk to someone to have clarity on what to do or where to go next. For over 12 years now, we have been a presence in the community that people can count on. I am privileged to serve in a variety of capacities and enjoy my roles. We serve and in turn have purpose ourselves. I would highly recommend our services to anyone in need of them.

I have been on both sides with this nonprofit. I have received services as well as offered my time to serve women who need emergency counseling and ultrasounds for their unplanned pregnancies. Taps pregnancy services is a place that is welcoming, kind, and a great resource for women in need of a gentle helping hand and quick service.

CAPS is an amazing organization, helping and empowering women from all walks of life. Each woman that comes into one of their offices is met with unconditional compassion and support. A great deal of time, effort and training is put into providing the best service possible for whatever situation a woman may find herself in. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an incredible group of volunteers.

During the almost fourteen years I volunteered at CAPS as a Counselor I witnessed firsthand the impact this place has in every client that comes in. Women from all ages come burdened with fear, confusion and uncertainty. Volunteers and staff at CAPS are able to provide a safe, non-judgemental place for these women where they find not only help and resources, but also a caring and personal environment. A comment I most usually heard after a counseling appointment was "This place is so nice, I felt comfortable and welcomed here."
CAPS will be forever in my heart, and love to tell others about it.

As a weekly volunteer at CAPS, I get to see first hand the care and concern extended to clients who find their way to our center. Counselors, staff, and medical personnel are at once professional and compassionate to each woman seeking our services. Their are also counselors available for the men who's lives are impacted by the unplanned pregnancy of wife or girlfriend, also administered with genuine concern. CAPS is positively assisting women of San Diego, whether their need is counseling, resource referral or simply stability and kindness during uncertain circumstance.

CAPS is a very unique place filled with love from the moment you enter the clinic. I have been a volunteer for just under a year and I have been humbled by the amount of compassion the staff and volunteers have for each person and their current situation. CAPS is very intentional about the level of professionalism, care offered, and keeping things up to date and current. I have friends that have needed the assistance of CAPS and were so happy that CAPS was an option!

I have been volunteering with CAPS for over a year now. I only have outstanding things to say about CAPS. The ministry here touches the hearts of so many women. I volunteer as a nurse, so I am able to educate women on their health and provide medical support in a time where they face many questions, are feeling scared in their current situation, or are excited for whats to come. It is such an honor to be with these women and support them in their pregnancies! I always feel supported by the staff of CAPS and look forward to serving each week; this is such an uplifting experience! I can't wait to see how we continue to grow with the opening of our third clinic!

CAPS' focus truly is to serve women well. The staff and volunteers are there because they care about women in crisis pregnancies and want them to fully know their options. Staff and volunteers are extensively trained on how to make patients feel understood, cared for, and loved.

I'm a current volunteer at CAPS and I absolutely love this ministry. They truly care about the women (and men) they serve. I am most impressed by the on-going training they provide their volunteers. They truly do care about these women and it's always stressed that we are not there to save babies necessarily, but to serve and love the women that come in looking for help. It is always their belief that God does the saving and He works through CAPS in beautiful ways. Of course they care for the babies, but listening to and providing a safe place for these ladies to come and figure out what they need is always first and I love that, I feel it takes the pressure off of me in my own power and gives it to the One it belongs to. It's wonderful to be part of the work that God is doing through CAPS.
