New Hope Pregnancy Care Center

New Hope Pregnancy Care Center just celebrated its 28th year in operation. These have been exciting and challenging times as the center has gone though many changes. Back in 1985, three prominent Cleveland women met and shared a similar concern and burden for a need to help those facing crisis or pregnancies. All three women wanted to see a safe place for women and men to come and receive complete and accurate information to help them in making wise choices for their future. They also desired this to be a place where women who have already had an abortion, could find nurture and guidance without condemnation. After a year of study, letter writing, research, and prayer, others joined the original three. These faithful seven committed to this vision and on October 3, 1986 Bradley County birthed its first Pregnancy Care Center. Since the birth of New Hope, hundreds of women have been strengthened and given hope on their personal journeys. There are numerous stories of lives that have been totally transformed as a result of the counsel, training, and support that they received from this center. We are so grateful for the opportunities given for us to continue helping women and men here in the greater Cleveland area. We are extremely grateful to the community of Cleveland, because they believe in the “Sanctity of Life,” therefore they stand with us as we are a non-profit organization. Due to the generosity of others, we are able to offer all of our services free of charge, and fulfill the mission of New Hope which is to give “Help and Hope to those in Need.”
