New Courtesy Ultrasounds

New Courtesy Ultrasounds

Hope Unlimited Family Care Center has added some news services for people needing a pregnancy test!

In addition to offering free and confidential walk-in testing, Hope Unlimited’s licensed sonographer now provides courtesy ultrasounds for a “first look” at the baby!  These scans are not diagnostic, but do offer moms and dads a chance to see their growing child’s heartbeat.  All women are eligible for a courtesy ultrasound, as long as they are more than six weeks along and are not under another doctor’s care for the current pregnancy.

Patients in Kentucky may also choose to continue their medical care at Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s prenatal care clinic in Paducah.  In addition to a sonographer, Hope Unlimited has a registered nurse on duty all week.  Dr. Jorge Cardenas is the attending obstetrician.  Beginning this spring, all prenatal care clinic patients may enter a monthly drawing to win a car seat, thanks to funding provided by the Rotary club of Paducah, Thrivent Financial and donors Mary & Fred Burchett.

Baby Bottle Blitz

Baby Bottle Blitz

Now is the time to start thinking about your church or organization’s Baby Bottle Campaign!

Hope Unlimited Family Care Center distributes baby bottles Mother’s Day to Father’s Day each year.  People fill bottles with cash, change and checks, with a goal to have each bottle contain $30.  Every penny supports and empowers moms and dads to grow stronger families.  Last year, more than 100 churches and many more businesses helped Hope Unlimited Family Care Center raise about $44,000 for parents on both sides of the Ohio River.

Starting or improving your campaign is easy!  We would love to talk to you about how you can help families by filling a bottle.  Call or email us today!

You Helped Families

You Helped Families

Thank you so much for a strong start to 2018… Because of your generous giving, Hope Unlimited Family Care Center will reach moms and dads who feel alone!

We asked many of you to contribute at the end of last year, setting a goal to see 50 new patients in our prenatal care clinic and give them a first glimpse of their growing babies.  We also wanted to provide an opportunity for restoration for 15 people impacted by abortion.

Your overwhelming response makes us realize we, too are Not Alone when we work to support, empower and love families in our community.  Thank you for partnering with us!

“I wanted to volunteer somewhere after I retired, but I didn’t expect this mentoring program to fill my soul like it does.”  Hope Unlimited Family Care Center Volunteer Nelda Burnett has been serving the Metropolis location for nearly four years.

“I get encouragement by seeing people respond to God in various ways.  [Our parents] respond from where they are… and God and the staff and volunteers meet them wherever they are.”  Miss Nelda mentors moms who come to Hope Unlimited looking for new ways to lead their families.  She loves connecting to new people, but also enjoys being with the staff.  She says, “I’m blessed by being there!”

Would you like to mentor moms or dads?  Hope Unlimited Family Care Center offers free training for men and women.  Call 270.442.1166 or 618.524.5730 to learn more!

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.
