NEWS RELEASE — After a year of planning and community support, Hope Life Center is ready to launch their new custom designed, 31 ft. mobile medical unit at a Ribbon Cutting ceremony.
The public is invited to go inside the unit and meet the staff and members of the board:
- Wednesday, April 25 from 3:00 until 5:00 pm
- Ribbon cutting at 3:30pm
- Located at Hope’s Main location, 605 S. 24th, Wausau (behind Hampton Inn)
The mobile unit provides clients and potential clients who are unable to travel to the Wausau or Antigo offices access to services like pregnancy testing, STD testing and treatment, and limited OB ultrasound exams.
Also, advocacy and education for expectant moms and many of the essential supplies that newborn babies need are available. All services and supplies are provided free of charge to Hope clients.
“The fundraising campaign for the mobile unit began last September. By April 1st, we had raised almost our entire $250,000 goal,” said Jack Hoogendyk, Executive Director of Hope Life Center. “This is the culmination of a lot of planning, prayer and fund raising. Based on the track record of similar centers, we expect to see a twofold increase in clientele.”
Hope Life Center is a faith-based, 501-c-3 non-profit organization that is funded by private donations.
