BIRTH OF A FAMILY?
Are you looking for better ways to protect pre-born lives?
Are you looking for better ways to connect the Body of Christ to life-affirming ministry?
Are you frustrated by recidivism where single mothers keep showing up with the same problem but different fathers of their children?
Would you like for people to be set free from cycles of unhealthy relationships?
Do you believe children need their fathers?
Will it be impossible to effectively address our toughest problems like poverty, abuse, neglect, mental illness, and addiction without completing family circles with fathers?
“The success of Birth of a Family has been phenomenal. After over twenty years of serving as a pregnancy resource center director, I am now seeing one of my dreams come true. We are reaching the fathers.”

James Smith was one of the very first fathers to experience Birth of a Family in 2006. After participating in Birth of a Family activities with the mother of his child, James made a comment that reminds me why we do this. He said, “Birth of a Family turned everything around. It helped me see things in a whole new way.” That’s my dream and my dream, come true.
