Support changes everything

The blessing of pregnancy usually calls for joyful celebration. But for those caught in the cycle of poverty, addiction or abuse, pregnancy is an additional challenge that can lead to abandonment and despair.

Since 1976, we’ve been empowering at-risk pregnant women to become confident, capable parents and thriving members of society. By meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, we’re able to stop the cycle and positively impact future generations.

Ministering to women in crisis is what God has called me to do. Solve has the most beautiful heart to accomplish this through the love of Jesus Christ. It is truly an honor and a blessing to be involved with this team where we can see the hand of God at work every single day.”
