The Women's Center is a problem pregnancy help center. Because of the care and concern of our staff, volunteers, and benefactors, each year over 70% of the women who feel abortion is their only option, decide in favor of life. We provide practical help, including counseling, clothes, baby furniture, referral services, etc. as needed.

A Client Advocate full time/part time position is available at our south side office. Also needed is a part time, bilingual Call Conversion Specialist at our north side office. See our website at www.gotwc.org for details on these positions.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: substitute and on-call (flexible hours are available); to sort donated items and assist clients in our Family Room; help with mailings and baby bottle projects; bi-lingual who are conversational in Spanish to help in special areas; receptionist Friday morning and occasionally Saturday at our Evergreen Park office. For more info on these volunteer roles, call us at 708-320-4066.

SEEKING DONATIONS: Currently we are accepting car seats (all less than 7 years old) for 20-40 lb. infant car seats, toddler beds, baby carriers-(front and back), dressers, no crib mattresses. We also need baby food (in date) and Enfamil formula, baby shampoo, baby lotion, baby wipes, and diapers in size 6 only and pull-up diapers and women's hygiene products. These items cannot be picked up unless accompanied by baby furniture. The families who receive these things are grateful for your your generosity. For our address where you can deliver them to us or if a pick-up by a volunteer is needed, please call 773-794-1313.

THE COFFEE & DONUT MINISTRY
Needs Your Help!

Our longtime Coffee & Donut Ministry coordinators, Teresa and Glen Stewart have left Illinois for greener
pastures, and we have a new coordinator who's seeking help to continue the ministry. We'll continue to recruit ministries to take their turn serving the donuts but we're looking for couples/individuals/families who are willing to rotate set-up/supervision/clean-up on a regular basis. Please e-mail Elizabeth Bauer at
lizbauer3 @gmail.com or call the parish office if you can help.
