The Women’s Center of Chicago is Looking for Help!
During this holy season of Lent, we contemplate the agony and death of Jesus, but we also think joyfully of His resurrection. Similarly, many women in unplanned pregnancies are troubled and sad. They come to The Women’s Center and receive help, counseling and prayers. After they give birth they are filled with joy when they cradle their baby in their arms.
