2023 Reflections

How was your Christmas holiday? I pray that you had the opportunity to spend time with family and friends and were able to reflect on Christ’s birth, the Savior of the World. As we wrap up 2023, I would like to share some reflections from our ministry at Alpha Care Center, but first, let me introduce myself.

I am the new Executive Director at Alpha Care Center. I have been serving at Alpha for almost 5 years, starting out as a volunteer client advocate and then moving into a leadership role helping to establish the Lake Odessa location. God has now opened the door – very wide – for me to now become the Executive Director. I am a wife and a mother, but most importantly, I am a Child of God.

Starting this new chapter in my life has given me reason to look more closely at the ministry we provide to the Lake Odessa and Lowell communities. Alpha Care Center exists to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children in our communities. We empower them to make life changing decisions pertaining to unplanned pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption. We desire that each client hear about the love of Christ, be shown the love of Christ, and accept the love of Christ.

We start with compassion. We aim to bring clarity. We offer companionship. We help people find a community. We point all things to Christ.

In 2023 Alpha Care Center:

  • Performed 37 pregnancy tests.
  • Performed 43 ultrasounds.
  • Facilitated one (1) abortion pill rescue protocol.
  • Increased the average number of clients seen at both locations.
  • Served 124 unique client families.
  • Provided 610 earn while you learn (EWYL) appointments.

Alpha cannot do the work that God has laid before us without partners like you. The cost of services and material supplies has increased exponentially in 2023. Through your generous giving, Alpha Care Center was able to assist families with diapers, wipes, formula, clothing, etc. This past year we were able to provide over 20,000 diapers – at $0.40 a diaper . . . that’s over $8000 in diapers!!!

As we plan for 2024, we would like to end 2023 strong and start the new year off avoiding any budget shortfalls. Would you prayerfully consider a year-end gift of $5, $50, or 500 to aid Alpha in providing services to families seeking our support? Your gift is tax-deductible.  Perhaps you would like to commit to giving monthly through 2024. Monthly donations are easy to set up and allow us to budget, knowing your gift of support is on its way.

Unable to give financially? We have opportunities allowing you to tangibly serve. Please email me at to learn more about volunteering. Alpha Care Center has opportunities at both our locations that can fit your busy schedule.

Faithfully serving,

As our partner, we thank you for your prayers and support. Thank you for providing HOPE and supporting LIFE!
