Through your support and donations you have changed the lives of so many women and families in our area. See/hear some of their stories.
A little over two years ago God blessed my family with two beautiful children. William was two and Savannah was 2 month and withdrawing from crack. It came as quite a surprise, we had no time to prepare. We had absolutely nothing to accommodate theses beautiful angels. They came to us with the clothes on their backs and a few accessories.
During this transition life certainly changed in a big way. Experiencing all the wonderful things life brings with children in it, it also brought some added anxiety, schedules, late nights and expenses. Becoming parents overnight, you understand pretty quickly the importance of a support system. The Family Life Center provided us that added support and encouragement. They have been instrumental in the success of our family. Providing us with bedding, diapers, wipes, baby food and clothing at affordable prices. The help didn't just come in the form of things but also in love and support. The Family Life Center opened their heart to our family and made us feel the love of Jesus.

Knights of Columbus purchase new portable ultrasound for our new Wapakoneta location.
With the help of the St Marys Council #1592, Wapakoneta Council, and Minster Council, the National Council of the Knights of Columbus and lots of supporters they were able to purchase a brand new portable ultrasound machine printer cart and several other items we needed in order to set up a new location. All in all they raised over $32000! Our FLC vision has been to reach out to communities in West Central Ohio through its compassionate services and programs. Out next logical step was to go to the county seat of Wapakoneta in order to provide services there. At this time we a planning to partner with Mercy Unlimited in Wapakoneta.
Mercy Unlimited Inc. was started by a small group of Christians who saw a need to help families in the community with food. Since then, they have expanded our services to meet additional needs with God's provision and community support. Their ministry has helped over 160,000 families with a need for food, shelter, clothing, medication and prayer.
Their mission is to meet emergency needs and to share the love of Jesus Christ, the ultimate answer to all of life's problems.
