Partnerships Strengthen Community

By Terry C.

This past week, I was honored to have the opportunity to speak to volunteers at Bridgehaven Pregnancy Support Center in Cedar Rapids. While at Bridgehaven I met with many of the kind and wonderful volunteers who make this organization work. I shared with them what Journey Coaching is about, and they gave me a tour of their facilities. The place was abuzz with women and families who were taking classes, obtaining food, clothing and infant supplies.

For those that haven’t had the opportunity to experience Bridgehaven, Bridgehaven is a nonprofit organization that has been serving the Cedar Rapids area for over 35 years. They provide compassionate support, with free pregnancy tests and confirmation ultrasound, along with practical support like food, clothing, skills classes and more.  I can’t begin to describe how vital this organization is to the Cedar Rapids area and how much they depend on donations and volunteers to do their work. I am excited for the opportunity to partner with Bridgehaven in the future!

Partnering with Journey will provide Bridgehaven an opportunity to expand their services to offer more one-on-one mentoring, and it will allow Journey a chance to serve our community through this positive and life-affirming ministry.
