Saving Lives Since 1985

Mission

The Women's Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada exists to save the lives of unborn children by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through spiritual, physical, emotional and educational support to our clients.

Notes from the nonprofit

Babies who do not receive adequate prenatal care are three times more likely to have a low birth weight and five times more likely to die than those born to mothers who receive care. Additionally, women with unplanned pregnancies, who are uninsured or on Medicaid, or women who have experienced discrimination are more likely to delay their initiation of prenatal care. Nevada is near the bottom in the nation for its high percentage of births to mothers with little or no prenatal care. Our Values Prenatal Program is an important foundation for these women and their partners because it introduces them to our comprehensive, faith-based platform early on, and it answers many of their concerns about prenatal care as well as early childhood care. It begins with the early detection of pregnancy and continues until the child is three years old. We do not charge patients for our services, and so we seek this funding to continue to provide this important support system for families in Southern NV.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Established as a faith-based, charitable 501 (c )3 organization in 1984 and opening to receive clients in 1985, the Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada is currently celebrating three decades of service.

Statistics from the Center for Disease Control and the Alan Guttmacher Institute indicate that 93% of all abortions occur because of social or economic reasons and that 50% of women who have had an abortion in the past are more likely to have another. Nevada has been identified as one of the top 10 “at risk” states for high abortion rates. Recent statistics from the state of Nevada show that 69% of women having abortions are economically disadvantaged. Since 1985 we have personally met with many of these women and we have found that the majority of them would not choose abortion if they simply had someone to assist them in their circumstance. The organization acts as a charity and is not a political entity. All of the services that we offer are free of charge to our clients.

Over the years, we have expanded our programs and our reach in order to follow the various abortion trends of our community. When we first opened in 1985, our counseling program was emphasized because we knew that the majority of abortion decisions were driven by a belief that it wasn’t a life, but rather just a blob of tissue. Through our counseling program, we educated our clients on prenatal development to show them the truth of when life begins and the stages of life in their womb. Eighteen years later, that message was enhanced by our new ultrasound program. The “window to the womb” was a perfect way to connect to a generation who had become more used to visual communication. The truth about life was being proclaimed and God used it to transform the hearts and minds of our clients and thousands of lives were saved.

New Programs

Educational Classes
The educational classes are designed to further support a decision for life and they are offered to both the mother and the father of the baby. Topics include; fetal development, nutrition, emotional coping, childbirth education, Lamaze, caring for newborns, understanding a father’s role, and infant massage.

Adoption
Not all of our clients desire to parent. In order to encourage a decision for life with those clients, we will open an in-house open adoption agency that will give our clients the option of having a relationship with their child and the adoptive parents. In the state of Nevada every year, an average of 600 newborns and an average of 1,200 children, ages 1 to 5, enter into our foster care system. Our adoption agency will help to decrease the number of children flowing through the foster care system, and it will also allow the adoption process to be more feasible for families who seek to adopt.

Prenatal Care
We have identified a gap in our services that has hindered the continuity of our compassionate, complementary care to our clients. The majority of the pregnant women whom we serve do not receive proper prenatal care which would optimize the health of both the mothers and their unborn children. Nevada is ranked 48th of the 50 states for its high percentage of births to mothers who have had little or no prenatal care. If provided early enough, prenatal care helps to detect congenital malformations, low birth weight, and infant death. Congenital malformations are now the leading cause of infant mortality in the U.S. and the fear of or the lack of knowledge as to how to access or afford prenatal care is one of the top drivers that lead women to consider abortion. Our Values Prenatal Program began in September of 2017. We are the only nonprofit in Nevada offering free prenatal care!

The Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada operates on an annual income ranging from $2.4 million to $2.6 million. Our current and historical income sources have been through special events and individual and corporate donations. Sustainability has been realized through our monthly giving programs and high donor retention rates.

New initiatives for income diversification have been developed and will be implemented in 2018. We have built a business plan to open a thrift store called, Vintage Values Boutique which will eventually become a small chain of retail centers throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

Our expenses are well managed and supported by volunteerism. We have 270 active volunteers who serve over 12,000 hours every year from medical professionals to administrative assistance.

The leadership of Women's Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada began to fast and to pray that God would reveal His plans for the future of His life-saving organization, specifically, what the organization should look like in the next decade of service and beyond. The doors of this organization opened 32 years ago and since that time, we have estimated that through the work of our agency, we’ve witnessed the birth of over 40,000 babies whose lives were at risk to be aborted.

This great success has caused us to look toward the future, to see how we can make an even greater impact as we enter a new decade of serving our community. The year 2020 will mark our 35th Anniversary, and we have developed a strategic plan that will enhance the effectiveness of our mission in ways that are even more relevant to our community. We are calling this plan “Vision 2020”. The Vision includes the expansion of our life - saving programs, an endowment fund to generate a new revenue stream to fund our program expansion, and a capital campaign to purchase a building that will meet the space requirements for our current and future growth.

New Program 2020 and beyond - Not all of our clients desire to parent. In order to encourage a decision for life with those clients, we will open an in-house open adoption agency that will give our clients the option of having a relationship with their child and the adoptive parents. In the state of Nevada every year, an average of 600 newborns and an average of 1,200 children, ages 1 to 5, enter into our foster care system. Our adoption agency will help to decrease the number of children flowing through the foster care system, and it will also allow the adoption process to be more feasible for families who seek to adopt.

We are seeking ownership of a building that would not only provide us with the additional space that we need but will also position us for a more rooted future financially. “Vision 2020” includes a capital campaign to fund the ownership of a medical building.

Our organization has been serving in the medical district since 1985, and we are encouraged that this is an area of intentional focus for the city’s current economic and urban development plans. We are already one of the busiest pregnancy centers in the nation and with the expansion of our programs as well as the influx of people seeking medical services within this district, we can anticipate accelerated growth in clientele.

We have identified a building that would meet all of the criteria for Vision 2020, located right in the heart of Southern Nevada Medical District.
