AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – The Hope Choice Pregnancy Center is expanding to the West Texas A&M campus in Canyon to better serve students and the Canyon community.
Construction is underway on a building they received in 2019 after having too many visitors to its main building in Amarillo.
“There are about 2,500 pregnancy centers across the country. An average pregnancy center sees 80 clients per month. In Amarillo, including all of our locations, we see over 1,000 clients a month,” said Candy Gibbs, executive director of Hope Choice Pregnancy Center.
The building, named 13:30, will be a mentorship center for college students while providing select pregnancy support services.
“It doesn’t affect your whole life or change the trajectory of your life, but being able to help them where they are,” said Nick Immel, acting director of 1:30 p.m.
They raised $1.1 million towards their goal of reaching $2.5 million.
I hope the choice made one countryside so people can donate to his cause.
“Students often come here from home, they need opportunities to build good relationships, good community with other students who also want to make an impact,” Gibbs said.
Classrooms, study spaces, a café, an outdoor terrace and a sand volleyball court will be added to the center.
The organization plans to open the facility in early June.
