In October, BCHFS is set to launch its newest ministry—GraceHaven, a pregnancy resource center in Mt. Vernon. The facility, located less than a block from Angels’ Cove Maternity Center, will offer pregnancy testing and ultrasounds, as well as mentoring and resources for expectant parents.
As the building was under renovation last spring, BCHFS posted on Facebook about the mission of GraceHaven. “Our pregnancy resource clinic will NOT be an abortion clinic nor will it make referrals for abortion. It will be a safe place that believes in truth, compassion and the importance of knowing all the facts before parents make a decision.”
GraceHaven will also feature an onsite boutique designed to encourage soon-to-be moms and dads. Parents earn points for going to doctor’s appointments, taking parenting classes, and other activities, and then can redeem the points for baby gear at the boutique.
The center will host an open house Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. RSVP by calling BCHFS at (618) 382-4164.
