DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The mission of the Wiregrass Hope Group is to share the hope of Jesus Christ, promote human life, and care for people.
The Wiregrass Hope Group’s pregnancy center offers care and support to women and families facing a planned or unplanned pregnancy.
Since 1983 the Wiregrass Hope Group has been serving Dothan and the surrounding communities. The organization offers three types of services in, biblical counseling, relationship education, and pregnancy resources.
“We do a free pregnancy test, we also do a free ultrasound, and then we have a nine-session parenting program,” Wiregrass Hope Group Executive Director Amy Edge said. “The pregnant women gets to meet one-on-one with a trained mentor, and so we have things throughout the program and those nine sessions for her to learn about being a good mom.”
A majority of the pregnancies they see are unplanned, but the group will let the woman know what resources are available to her.
“Let us help you know what to do and how to take care of your baby, and how to take care of yourself,” Edge said. We’re also just there to help her be the person that she thought she wanted to be before she found out she was pregnant.”
During discussion’s about the Abortion Bill, Democrat Alabama State Representative John Rogers stated: “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” regarding pro-life legislation.
“We believe that all people have value regardless of how much money they have, what the color of their skin is,” Edge said. “The reality is we have to decide who’s a human, and one we decide that that infant inside the mother’s womb is a human then I think all of them have value.”
All of the services at Wiregrass Hope Group are provided at no cost to their clients. They are supported mainly through the generosity of individuals, churches, and local businesses.
