This summer we launched Abortion Pill Reversal. We also continue to make connections around the community and make plans for a Pregnancy and Infant Loss program.

Next on our calendar is our semi-annual Take Courage Abortion Recovery Retreat the weekend of October 18-20. Please be in prayer for the participants as they take steps to hope and healing.


Our new mentorship program is up and running! We’ve also continued to serve our Earn While You Learn families through weekly classes.

In July, we welcomed Karin Bugler as our Client Support Relations Assistant. She’s been a great addition to our team!


This summer was especially busy as we were all over the Cedar Rapids metro at different agencies. With the start of fall, presentations at area schools has been added to our weekly schedule as well.

Vina Seely joined as our Prevention Educator in June! She has quickly become a valuable member of our team.


We just finished our annual fall fundraiser! In Her Shoes raised $19,500 for the ministry. We also continue to search for a new Development Director.


Our Sidewalk Sale, Fashion Show, and Fall Reveal were big successes, and our weekly sales continue to bump up revenue for the ministry. Next up is our Christmas Reveal on Friday, November 1!
