Who We Serve
Our Clients & Our Community
Many of our clients have limited support systems and limited resources which all contribute to a cycle of limited choices. This can often lead to feelings of ambivalence when it comes to pregnancy options.
We provide alternatives and options for women and families who may feel that they have no other choice but an unwanted abortion. We work with them to reduce the economic, educational and isolation barriers to parenting.
We create a safe environment by supporting individuals in making informed decisions that are consistent with their own values and by providing supports for all pregnancy outcomes.
Our clients often feel alone, and many of them are isolated from friends and family physically because of a move or immigration, work or unsupportive relationships. Clients who are new to Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows often feel isolated from this community. Our role is to provide not only a personal link, but also a community link. We do this in a number of ways and offer the following free services:
- New parents groups
- Practical skills training through BrightCourse
- Church groups
- Support after abortion
There are many ways you can help us support families in our community.
