Mission: The Women's Care Center of Sevier County is a faith based ministry committed to the care support of women and their families. We seek to empower clients to make the best life affirming choices they can for their reproductive health, lifestyle, family life and future. We minister to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our clients. We strive to ensure that no women in the greater Sevier County, TN. area is forced to have an abortion due to lack of options or support. We also provide abortion recovery guidance.
Results: We have had approximately 1500 client visits in the past 18 months. Women's Care Center of Sevier County TN is currently finishing up our annual Bottles for Babies campaign. Gearing up for Sevier County, Fair Sept. 5-10 2011.
Target demographics: Women seeking pregnancy education and support.
Programs: Earn While You Learn : Clients learn answers to many of the questions and concerns that come with pregnancy and parenting. Through video lessons you'll learn important information about pregnancy, your baby/child or children. After each session client earns "Baby Bucks" to exchange for items such as, diapers, formula, and other much needed supplies for them and baby/child.
If you are needing someone to talk with or help finding out the facts about pregnancy, parenting or abortion, any and all of us that volunteer and the staff are waiting your call. We can help you with emergency items such as pregnancy test, infant formula, diapers, infant furniture and so many other things. We are the only organization in the Sevier County area that offers these services along with classes, and many other items free of charge. This is such a need in today's economic climate. I am blessed to be a part of this wonderful non profit organization.
I have been a volunteer since 2007. I have learned what love and compassion is all about while working at the center. Our community has lots of needs and the center strives to meet those needs.
Being a volunteer is sooo rewarding ! I love it and I love our clients !
I volunteer at the Center once a week and feel like I am doing an important part toward sharing the love of Christ Jesus with some that would otherwise not necessarily see that love or hear about it. Some may need to know if they are pregnant, some need food, diapers or clothes for their children or their grandchildren or other relative they are now taking care of. Sometimes they need to know how to take care of themselves or their children and we can help through our parenting classes or sexual integrity classes. And sometimes all they need is someone to talk to or just to listen to them and we can do that by just being there.
I learned about wcc at FBC .a young mother shared her experience at womens care center. Her story touched my heart . It was then I made
the decision to become a part of this ministry.
Volunteering at has been a blessing to me . also although my children
and most of my grandchildren are grown,the parenting classes have
taught me a lot . I often tell my daughter that Iwould have handled some
parenting skills differently had I had the knowledge that we are able to
share with the girls and women who visit us at WCC
I have seen many women and families helped by the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Women's Care Center. Every situation is handled in a professional manner and all services are kept completely confidential.
