21 years ago, Paula’s passion for helping others facing an unexpected pregnancy brought her to the Center as a volunteer. Driven my her own unexpected pregnancy and poor choices in response, Paula wanted to help others make different choices. It is that passion for others that has sustained her as she began serving as the leader of this fabulous group of women and men in April 2001.
Integrity, trustworthiness, a heart for following Christ, and the ability to love on all the different people that we come into contact with are all values that Paula holds in high esteem as she leads her team. If you have the desire and the passion to serve others and want to discuss opportunities to be on our team, please give Paula a call.
