Hope Pregnancy Center
Hope Pregnancy Center focuses on educating women to help them make better decisions about pregnancy and parenting.
Director Valeska Littlefield says that their mission is to provide facts and help remove the fear from the beginning of pregnancy through parenthood. The services that Hope Pregnancy Services provides are free of charge. They offer pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, parenting classes, a maternity home, and assistance with a high school education.“Our main goal is to educate our clients on how to have a healthy pregnancy and make life affirming decisions,” Littlefield says.
Hope’s baby boutique helps mothers get the things they need to raise their baby. Items needed for donations to the baby boutique are diapers, clothes, toys, baby equipment, and furniture. However Hope Pregnancy Center cannot accept donations of used cribs or used car seats. Mothers who takes Hope Pregnancy Center’s classes earn “mommy money” to purchase items from the baby boutique. Individuals who are interested in donating to the baby boutique can call Hope Pregnancy center at 918-622-3325. Donated items are tax deductible and donors will be given a receipt.
Littlefield says that they always looking for volunteers to be mentors to the young mothers in their program. Training is provided for those who would like to be a mentor. “Our young women need support systems because that’s one of the things they are lacking and so the mentors are a part of that support system that really helps them to start making some good decisions,” Littlefield explains. As a mentor volunteers can expect to invest four hours once a week (either during the week or over the weekend) establishing a relationship with a mother. Littlefield says they seek to help women come out of an “enabling mode” and into independence. “We really want to help women come out of destructive patterns,” Littlefield explains their passion, “one of the ways we are able to do that is by establishing those relationships with them and helping them to see things with a little bit of a different perspective.”
