The Crisis Pregnancy Outreach, 7807 E. 76th St. in Tulsa, has been helping women in crisis find a brighter future since 1983. Its services and support are free and confidential.
Its mission is to provide compassionate, meaningful support to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, and to support unborn and newborn babies, helping their mothers parent them or place them with loving families.
Calvary Baptist Church would like to help. Please pray for them and consider donating through the church so we can support the organization.
Here are ways we can help:
Infant and maternity clothes
Necessary food for mothers (powdered mile, peanut butter, cereal, canned fruit, etc.)
Temporary transportation to pregnancy services
