What We Offer

Our desire is for every woman we serve to have the opportunity to develop long-term healthy support networks within the community. This program is available to any woman, pregnant or not, who would like to enter into a mentorship relationship.

Connect Mentorship Program

The Connect Mentorship Program is a partnership between The Pregnancy Network and local churches. This mentoring program serves the purpose of connecting clients with both mentoring relationships and opportunities to grow among a body of Christians (a local church). The purpose of the Connect Mentorship Program is to:
  1. Connect clients with a local church, providing them with a healthy support network.
  2. Provide clients with love and biblical direction and discipleship before, during, and after pregnancy.
  3. Provide opportunities for local churches to love and serve women facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Participants

This mentorship opportunity is available to any of our clients who express a desire to get connected with a local church and explore or develop their relationship with God, or simply need further personal support.

Mentors

Mentors sign up through their church contact (ambassador). They commit to pursuing a mentoring relationship with an individual client to whom they are connected.

Ambassadors

An ambassador is one person from each participating church who serves as the contact between The Pregnancy Network and participating mentors. She will connect clients to mentors she recruits in her church.
