WHO IS LIFECARE? LifeCare Center saves unborn babies and helps build strong families in Ottawa, KS and communities within a 100-mile radius. As a faith-based, non-profit, we give men and women considering abortion a lifeline to other options. We offer HOPE in the form of free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, accurate information, resource assistance, and a caring hand to hold throughout their pregnancy and beyond. We also strengthen families through free education, mentoring and discipleship. By speaking Truth into their lives, we help them choose life for their babies and abundant life for themselves. We are GOING MOBILE in 2019 to provide these services on a much broader scale. Download the Bridges to Hope guide to learn more about LifeCare’s services, impact and needs.
This custom mobile ultrasound van will allow LifeCare to vastly widen the reach of our services and potentially save many more babies from abortion - as well as save mothers from the effects of having one. God has opened the door for this new mission field, and we are excited to see what He does in the coming months and years. The self-contained ultrasound van will utilize a portable ultrasound machine on the road in various communities and on college campuses one to two days per week to start. Thank you for partnering with us in this new venture!
YOU DID IT! We’re getting a van!
In just 8 short months, you helped us reach our van fundraising goal of $135,500! You gave LifeCare a VERY, VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and an incredible start to the new year. Celebrate with us as we praise our Savior for his gifts of salvation, life - and a new van!
Put the van into production in March to be delivered in June or July.
Receive the $25,000 in matching funds from Save the Storks.
Take detailed training from Save the Storks on the logistics and effective strategies of going mobile.
Continue a needs and opportunities assessment for where the new van will be utilized and start developing a timeline/schedule. We anticipate taking the van to underserved communities, college campuses and area events.
Contact churches, organizations and individuals in the areas that will be served by the van to form partnerships for the provision of services, i.e. parking locations, client resources and discipleship, financial support, etc.
Celebrate the new van ministry at our annual fundraising event in the spring. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 7!
Continue the high level of services currently offered at our physical location at 121 E. 2nd Street in Ottawa.

Kallie already had a son and was a single parent. The thought of having another child and doing it all alone seemed overwhelming. She thought abortion was then only option. That's when she came to LifeCare.
