HISTORY OF TLC PREGNANCY SERVICES

Beginnings

In the year 1995, and for many years prior, the building next door to TLC Pregnancy Services, previously called The Life Center, housed an abortion clinic. For years, it was a very difficult and challenging time for many women in the Elgin area who were in a crisis pregnancy.They were many in need of support, encouragement, and a safe environment to continue their pregnancy.

During that time, an active group of concerned Christians (Christians Right to Life of Northern Kane County) committed to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to give life affirming support to women in the community who were considering abortion.This group encouraged women to choose life for their unborn babies.

One hot summer afternoon while the group was sidewalk counseling in front of the abortion clinic, they observed a young couple who appeared apprehensive about their plans to abort. Members of the group spoke with the young couple about the option to choose life. At that moment it became evident that women who chose life had no facility nearby that would provide emotional and material support.

A few months later the group of Pro-Life Christians raised a large amount of money for a down payment to purchase the medical building next door to the abortion facility. While the fundraising was progressing, the abortion clinic (due to depleted funds) closed its doors! God is so faithful! This was truly an answer to prayer and a David and Goliath story. The group never dreamed that soon they would be operating a “Life Center” facility and that the abortion facility would close its doors. They also had no idea of the impact that this new “Life Center” would have on the community – the lives saved and the lives changed. The group never dreamed that soon they would be operating a “Life Center” facility.

Much needed to be done to get the building in shape. After six months of prayer and preparation, in June, 1996, The Life Center opened its doors! Since that time through information, encouragement along with spiritual and material support, women have been empowered to choose life. Those who come are often desperate and confused. They find a place of safety and a caring staff.

Presently, TLC Pregnancy Services offers:

• Hope through sharing the Gospel, providing the forgiveness of God, and a new life through Jesus Christ. Bibles and Christian materials are freely distributed.

• Life Choices Medical Clinic, with a trained and caring medical staff, provides free pregnancy tests and limited obstetrical ultrasounds.

• Practical help with professional referrals, maternity clothes, and baby items.

• The message of the benefits of living a sexually abstinent lifestyle for single men and women is shared. Along with providing information about the risks of casual sex, people are educated about sexually transmitted infections.

• Words of life are ministered to those who have had abortions, teaching about God’s forgiveness and the healing and restoring power of Jesus Christ.

• A library of books and materials related to pro-life issues, the family and Christian living.

• A men’s mentoring program is taking shape. Men need to be encouraged to follow the plan God has for them to become responsible and caring fathers. We are putting together a team of godly, mature Christian men who will mentor the young men who visit, and teach them life-changing truths from the Word of God.

• S.T.I. (sexually transmitted infection) facilitation is also available. Besides free test facilitation, information about these infections are provided, along with the message of sexual integrity both in and outside of marriage. We are praying for open hearts for sharing the Gospel with those who visit.

• Our Abstinence Program involves a team of trained individuals who visit local schools and talk to students about the benefits of “saving sex for marriage” and the dangers of sexual involvement outside of the marriage relationship, including the risks of S.T.I.’s.

• It is our mission to make our ministry at TLC Pregnancy Services and Life Choices even more effective as we expand our outreach – to lead more hurting women to the cross of Jesus and to witness even more women in unplanned pregnancy situations choose life.

Like many not-for-profit ministries, we desire to do much more – begin new programs to better serve those who come to us in need. We ask that you pray with us regarding these important issues:

Finances

We operate by donations and labor against limited funds. The summer months were, and often are, an especially difficult time of the year.  Our current financial limitation makes it impossible to hire staffing. A critical need!

Grant Writers

We are looking for grant writer to help fund needed resources.

Volunteers

We do have a great base of volunteers,however, there are always gaps that need to be filled with knowledgeable, hard-working people.

Currently we need:

• Bilingual (Spanish/English) office assistants to answer phones.

• Help with data entry and general office work.

• Assistance with special monthly mailings.

• Help with cleaning, sorting donations, mending and washing baby things.

• Drivers to take mothers to their appointments.

• Babysitters and help with special programs.

• Help with grounds and building maintenance.

• Painters, carpenters, plumbers and electricians are always needed.
