Amy Scheuring, in the photo above on the right, with VFL Board member Kate Luckett on the left; Constellation Energy gave us a $500 grant to go towards improving the search results for the North Side Women's Choice Network center. Thanks, Constellation!
Amy reports that VFL's advertising is having a big impact:
Within the first months of 2017, we have served an incredible number of clients and families. We are seeing an amazing 45% increase in all key outcomes over last year. This means 45% more visits, pregnancy tests, sonograms, and STD tests. Over 80% of our clients are assessed as “abortion minded” or “abortion vulnerable”. This means we are stretched to our limits but we are reaching our mission. By May 13, there were 671 visits to our Centers, 416 new clients, and 116 lives were saved from abortion (documented so far). We attribute much of this growth to our advertising partner, Vision For Life. Together we seek out the most effective ways to reach those most vulnerable to abortion. And the statistics reveal that those strategies have been successful! Please pray for our team to be able to effectively care for all those God sends to our doors." http://mypregnancycenter.org/wordpress/?p=2830#respond
We are working with Women's Choice Network and Choices Pregnancy Services to increase the number of babies born, rather than aborted, to 5 out of 6 in Allegheny County. It looks like we're on our way to our goal this year. Thank God!
