FOUNTAIN, Colorado – A new pregnancy center in Colorado Springs began receiving its first patients from Fountain Valley on Tuesday. The center said the new location, at 97 Widefield Boulevard, “will extend its impact to serve and support the families of Colorado Springs.”
The nonprofit Life Network, which operates the center, will provide free services such as pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD tests and parenting education. He says his goal is to empower moms, dads and families.
“We are excited to expand our impact on families in the Colorado Springs area by opening this third major site in Fountain Valley,” said Rich Bennett, president of Life Network. “We know that some of our customers currently drive from the Fountain area to our two existing centers. We look forward to serving these parents and families better – and serving even more women and men – in the future. “
Through its parenting education programs, clients regularly meet with a parenting coach and earn ‘babies’. These credits are then redeemed for new items such as a crib, car seat, stroller and diapers, made possible by local donors. Life Network also operates the Life Network Family Thrift Store at 5406 N Academy Blvd, offering quality affordable products. The proceeds of this thrift store, opened in October 2019, benefit the family mission of Life Network.
Additional center locations are at 3925 Centennial Boulevard and 3700 Galley Road, both in Colorado Springs.
