Originally from Peru, Sarah Fret moved to Paducah in 2015. As she explored her new neighborhood, she found Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s community store, Hope’s Closet. Sarah learned people in the community donate items to Hope’s Closet. Donations are then sold at thrift store prices helping families’ bottomline. The money raised helps fund Hope Unlimited’s free and confidential services for moms and dads.
This inspired Sarah. She immediately began to volunteer. “I have walked through a lot of situations in my life. The day I walked into Hope, I knew this was a place, if I gave my time to, I could promote services and opportunities for people to receive hope and love.” Sarah says her time here has helped her grow professionally. Her English is improving, and she’s polishing her customer service skills.
The medical care I have received at the [prenatal care] clinic has been amazing! I have loved getting a chance to get to know Steph [the sonographer] and Debbie [the nurse manager], and that they have gotten to know us, as well!” – Nikki Brinkley and Justin Scott, Paducah parents
I have always felt welcome and loved here. I highly recommend [Hope Unlimited Family Care Center] to any family. You will find help, acceptance and experience tremendous growth in your life. Thank you, Hope, for all you do.” – Bethany McLane, Metropolis parent
Spring is the season of growth, and we are certainly growing our services here at Hope Unlimited Family Care Center. Our medical team is slated to expand our current walk-in pregnancy test services to include limited sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing. Gonorrhea and Chlamydia screening will be confidential and available to men, women & teens.
In addition to promoting good health and sexual integrity education, this service will also allow Hope Unlimited Family Care Center to reach men, women and teens who may not normally step foot into our center. We hope to empower teens, dads, and moms to make changes promoting healthier families now and in the future.
