At the CPCC, we meet clients at their point of need to help reduce challenges related to their pregnancy. By providing accurate information on all three options (parenting, adoption and abortion), we create a safe place for them to make decisions based on their personal values. Through the provision of ongoing support and connections to resources in the community, we can enable a positive outcome to come out of what are often challenging circumstances.
If you would like to be part of this dynamic team of people who are making a difference in the lives of others, consider the opportunities we have available. At the Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre, we realize that the success we experience with the people we serve is directly related to our volunteer staff. The exceptional attitude of kindness and mercy, mixed together with a deep sense of dedication and commitment, creates a community of caregivers whose love for people changes lives.
Because of the nature of our ministry, most of our positions require a minimum commitment of at least one year. Another essential is the recognition of the true intrinsic value of all human life. Some of our clients have survived a complicated or destructive childhood or are currently living in a difficult situation. As caregivers, we must be able to remain completely non-judgemental in our attitudes while at the same time being filled with hope and love.
Throughout the year we have opportunities for people to get involved without the full training commitment. We always need people to bake homemade treats for our clients to enjoy during our classes. Some people knit, crochet or quilt blankets for our new babies. Others come in for a specific short-term task or help out in administration.
There are also opportunities to bring your small group or youth group to serve at the Centre. We host groups that help us with cleaning, organizing, and handyman type jobs. We also have a yearly Baby Bottle Fundraising Campaign for which we need groups to stuff the bottles before they go out to the churches.
If you have some time, and a skill you think could be put to use, contact Angela by email or phone:587-393-2959
We are privileged to partner with several colleges in providing practicum experiences for their students. These students give many hours of service in exchange for a unique learning opportunity with client contact. While many of these students stay on as volunteers, others take this valuable experience into their careers. Seeing lives changed by offering help during a crisis time is a life-enhancing experience for staff, volunteers and students. “I receive so much more than I give” is a commonly spoken statement.
For more information on our practicum program, please contact us.
