ENID, Okla. — Journey House Pregnancy Resource Center will host a fundraising dinner and ministry update event 6:30-8 p.m. Sept. 17, at Montgomery Hall, in the Hallie Gantz Student Center on the Northern Oklahoma College Enid campus, 2200 E. Maine.
The faith-based resource center opened last spring to provide ultrasounds, pregnancy testing, coaching and mentoring, educational resources and referrals to medical services for area women facing challenges during pregnancy.
Journey House also provides emotional and spiritual support, referrals and help signing up for services such as SoonerCare and food stamps, and connections to local nonprofits and churches that can help with issues such as poverty and food insecurity.
Amy Voth, Journey House executive director, said the Sept. 17 event will give the public a chance to enjoy the dinner, "hear our ministry update about what this last year has been about, hear some client stories and watch a video with a former client about how meaningful Journey House has been with her journey."
Journey House has seen a lot of changes and developments over the last year, Voth said, including the hiring of Baylee Hundley as the center's nurse manager, and moving the center Aug. 12 to its new location at 1008 W. Cherry.
Voth said the new location provides more privacy for clients and gives Journey House extra room to hopefully offer a post-abortion support and recovery group.
Registration for the fundraising dinner and ministry update is available online at https://tinyurl.com/JourneyHouse2019.
Registration cost is $20, which Voth said only covers the cost of the dinner. Any additional donations will go to support Journey House's ongoing operations. Donations will be accepted at the event, and also can be made online at the registration site.
All donations are tax-deductible. For more information on Journey House, visit http://journeyhouseenid.org.
