Our Beginnings As A Pro-Life Ministry
With prayer as a foundation, "Des Plaines Pro Life" was founded in 1983 to distribute educational materials about the injustice of abortion and help groups that provided alternatives to abortion. In response to the vast need for pro-life pregnancy assistance, the first Women's Center counseling office opened up on the north side of Chicago in 1984. Since that time, the organization has grown from one center to three counseling offices and two material goods resource centers in the greater Chicago metro area. A state-of-the-art Mobile Ultrasound unit has recently been acquired to serve women in disadvantaged areas where access to pregnancy centers is unavailable.
Through the generosity of hundreds of donors who believe in our frontline pro-life work, The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland has saved the lives of more than 40,000 babies over the past 35 years, and has provided assistance to thousands of others.
