Van Thermometer Goal Reached small.jpg

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!

What’s next?

  • Put the van into production in August to be delivered in December.

  • 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, van operations support, etc.

  • Celebrate the van’s arrival - date to be announced.

  • Continue the high level of services currently offered at our physical location at 121 E. 2nd Street in Ottawa.

What will we be able to do together with the van?

  • Save more babies' lives! 85% of women who enter the mobile unit choose life for their babies.

  • Reach abortion-minded women on up to eight college campuses and at special events in surrounding communities.

  • Reach women and men in rural towns to the east, south and west of Ottawa who currently have no pregnancy resource center in their town, or who have no free ultrasound services.

  • Offer the hope and love of Jesus Christ to hurting women and men.

  • Plug clients into material and spiritual resources in their communities.
