Mission Statement


A Woman's Concern is a Christian mission to women and couples in pregnancy distress, especially those considering abortion due to lack of information and support, and dedicated to providing life-saving help in a life-changing way. To this end we provide competent and caring services that include free pregnancy tests, sonograms, peer counseling and intervention, on-going support and referrals, parenting preparation classes, post-abortion healing and opportunities to learn about healthy sexual values, mature relationships and how to establish a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.

Description


Intervention The Intervention side of A Woman's Concern is our Healthy Futures program. This is a classroom based program that is in the Boston Public Schools, as well as the surrounding communities. The program is for 5 days and teaches students about healthy relationships and how the choices they make now will affect their future. Parenting Preparation Classes Women and couples that choose to have their child are invited to participate in our "My Baby and Me" classes. These classes are for about 10 weeks and cover a variety of topics that a new parent will face.
