How FLORECE Prenatal Center Cares for Expecting Mothers

FLORECE provides free pregnancy tests, weekly maternity classes, and post-abortion counseling. The prenatal center started a "Baby Boutique" for the expecting mothers to reward the women for attending maternity classes. For each maternity class they attend, the women receive points to redeem at the boutique in exchange for items like diapers and formula.

Currently, the city is overwhelmed by a wave of Venezuelan immigrants. The prenatal center provides an alternative option to an abortion clinic for the immigrants. Many of the immigrants live in basic situations with some on the streets in tents. Among other duties, volunteers help package and hand out food boxes for those in need.
