Several hundred supporters of the Natchitoches Women’s Resource Center gathered at the Natchitoches Events Center for the Center’s annual Celebration of Life. The popular fundraiser, now in its 13th year, featured an enjoyable dinner, fellowship and a speech by pro-life figure Sean Carey.
The Women’s Resource Center, an integral part of our community since 1989, serves 400 to 500 women each year. The center assists women from the moment they realize they are pregnant through their child’s first year. The expecting mothers receive pre-natal vitamins, baby supplies such as car seats, diapers, baby clothes and other items. The center does more than help with baby supplies, however. The mothers to be are offered classes in parenting, healthy relationships,car seat installation, budgeting and much more. The WRC is there to assist with every aspect of a new mother’s life. Above all, the women know that they are not facing the situation alone. The volunteers of the Women’s Resource Center are there to help and support them.
