What is a Client Advocate?

A client advocate is a spiritually mature woman.  Her spiritual gifts include discernment, service; She may have the gift of hospitality or teaching.  She is non-judgmental, knows God’s word is true and, strives to live according to His word.    She loves family, loves Jesus, and wants to see the family thrive and grow.  She has completed the client advocate course and observed other client advocates in action.

What does a client advocate do? 

She volunteers at the pregnancy center one time a week for a 2 to 3-hour shift Monday thru Thurs between 9:00 am and 8:00 pm

Meets with a woman facing an unintended pregnancy explaining:

  1. pregnancy and pregnancy options
  2. sharing the Gospel and talking about a life with faith and hope
  3. problem solve, helping the client see solutions/alternatives to her problems.
  4. All this while loving the client as Jesus loves, not judging or condemning her, and encouraging her to begin to make decisions that will benefit her and her unborn child spiritually, mentally, physically.
Application

Volunteer Weekly.

Ultrasound Nurse: A volunteer ultrasound technician is a person with a medical background (preferably a registered nurse).  We have a
great training program for our technicians that includes counseling training, training on the U/S machine, and plenty of observations.


Client Advocate: A client advocate is a volunteer peer-counselor who meets with the client, learns about her situation and concerns and, ensures there is a quality pregnancy test performed. We provide a training class to prepare you for your client's appointments! 


Male Advocate: A male advocate is a peer-counselor who can meet with the client’s boyfriend/husband.  This position is a more relaxed time together, offering a young man the opportunity to share his concerns, explore his feelings, and understand his relationship with the Lord. We provide a training class to prepare you for your peer-counseling appointments!


Points To Success Helper: Every Thursday evening, we host a class called Points to Success. We teach clients about family management, baby CPR, and other pregnancy topics.  We need volunteer teachers and mentors and helpers on Thursdays from 6:15 pm-8:30 pm. We provide the teaching material.


Cleaning:  We need a team of one or more interested in performing some light housekeeping at the center.  

Praying: This is Kingdom work, so we need prayer warriors to cover our center in prayer - both in daily prayer time and also onsite in the counseling rooms and throughout the building (during non-peak times).  

 

Volunteer Opportunities
Application

 Less than Weekly Volunteer Commitment.

Donations Closet: We have a closet located in the back of our facility where we store donations. We would love some
organizers! This opportunity could fit around your schedule and will usually only require a few hours month


Once a Month you or your small group can provide a Points to Success Meal: To begin our Thursday evening class.  We need volunteers to prepare (or buy!) meals for 12-18 people and deliver these to our center by Thursday at 6:15 pm. The
meals have no allergy restriction and can vary from pizza to baked chicken to casseroles.  You are limited only by your imagination.  This is an opportunity to introduce your church and some members to our clients, and begin building those relationships.  Also, each church is given the opportunity to share our evening devotion during dinner time.    


Assorted Administrative Help: We have three major events throughout the year. These take many helping hands! We also have other various projects with which we need assistance. This could mean stuffing envelopes or calling for RSVPs to events or folding programs! The Center will email you when we need that extra help for projects! 


Development Team: We need both creative and logical minds to meet together, developing ideas for upcoming events, designing brochures, working on community projects and even visiting and being "church/business champions". This team would meet together every two months with our Executive Director and has special projects throughout the year.
