A Baby’s Breath provides free help in getting through a crisis pregnancy. We don’t just have our clients say “Yes” to Life, we are with them through all nine months and beyond. If a mother wishes to see her child in utero, we offer free ultrasounds. If a mother is without a home, we offer free housing during her pregnancy. As a client walks through the door for our core services, we ask – why is this a crisis pregnancy. The answers are unique, but it’s usually not a good time to be pregnant. Our clients are given their own advocates, someone to share their experiences of a crisis pregnancy. With each visit, our clients earn baby dollars to spend on the items that they need to take care of their baby. A nurse is partnered with our clients to answer medical questions and information about their baby. After the delivery, we offer group and individual parenting classes to continue the path out of crisis. Our clients are not asked to leave, but through the self-realization that they are no longer in crisis and can manage on their own. We share our Christian faith with our Warminster community by offering free, non-judgmental support. Share this with anyone who needs us.  For more information, please visit their website using this link.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders to be Keynote Speaker at Pennsylvania Family Institute Banquet

Please join the Pennsylvania Family Institute in celebrating their 30th anniversary in Hershey on Friday September 27 and  hear from former White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the keynote speaker. Information on tickets and sponsorships is listed below.  

 

Sarah

from Michael Geer, President & CEO – Pennsylvania Family Institute

This September, PA Family Institute marks our 30th anniversary, and I hope you can join me to celebrate!

One month from today, it will be 30 years since PA Family Institute opened its doors. I remember the day vividly as I settled into a small, one-room office in Harrisburg, excited to lead this new organization and give voice to families like yours across Pennsylvania.

By God’s grace, and thanks to people like you partnering with us, we now have become Pennsylvania’s leading pro-life, pro-family voice – making a significant difference for generations to come.

Thirty years is quite the milestone. And we want to celebrate it with the people that have made it all possible – you. What’s more, we’ve got big plans for the future — and Lord knows our children and grandchildren need us to stand up on their behalf now more than ever. That’s why I’m inviting you to join us for our 30th Anniversary Celebration Banquet in Hershey on Friday evening, September 27th. You won’t want to miss the big announcement we’re making that night — and I’m sure you’ll want to hear our exciting featured guest keynote speaker, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders served as White House Press Secretary and has become one of the leading voices of her generation. A mother of three, she’s someone with extraordinary talents whom TIME Magazine recognized as one of their “40 under 40.” And she recognizes the importance of family. When TIME asked what is one of the most overlooked issues facing our nation, she responded, “America needs more fathers taking an active role in their children’s lives.”

Her hero is her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who has been a previous PA Family Institute banquet speaker and worked closely with our sister organization in Arkansas during his time as governor.

I’d love for you to join us, and to consider sponsoring a table for this exciting event. Some sponsorship levels include a private reception with Mrs. Sanders, and your sponsorship helps generously support the work of the Pennsylvania Family Institute. We expect this event will be a sell-out; individual dinner tickets will be made available in the near future.

I do hope you will join us in Hershey on Friday, September 27th. We will also be joined by another special guest, Bob Vander Plaats, President and CEO of The FAMiLY Leader, which is our sister organization in Iowa, who will join us for a big announcement in advancing our cause in Pennsylvania and beyond.

For sponsorship information, please visit our website or you may call us at 717-545-0600.

For anyone celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary, the “official” gift to mark this tremendous occasion are pearls. A pearl literally means “unique” and represents something that has endured and lasted under pressure.

I am truly grateful, looking back over the years, about how this organization has been able to last under a variety of pressures and has continued to endure – and thrive! This is a testimony ultimately to God’s kindness through the lasting, sacrificial support from families like yours.

Volunteers Needed by the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition at Their Annual Fundraising Event at the Polish Festival in Doylestown, Pennsylvania

The following was sent to me from Sandy Slater, Vice-President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.  They are looking for volunteers to help man their tables at their annual Labor Day fundraiser at Our Lady of Czestochowa Polish Festival  on the following dates:

Saturday, August 31st; Sunday, September 1st; and Monday (Labor Day) September 2nd.

Saturday, September 7th, and Sunday, September 8th.

The hours are from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm on each of the days listed above.

They are offering an opportunity to be a part of the pro-life movement which is making tremendous strides in banning abortion.  Please think about donating an hour or more to this fundraising event.  The more volunteers, the more successful this event will be.

Admission to the festival itself is $12.00; however, there is no charge to volunteer to help the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition at their tables.   If you are available for an hour or two (or more) to support their efforts,  contact Sandy at 215-538-1390.

This fundraising event raises money for the pregnancy help centers and homes located in and around Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
