Statements of Support
"I am continually amazed at the compassion shown by the staff and volunteers at Hope Clinic, and the amount of effort you are able to get out of the individuals inspired and led to serve women and men in times of often extreme crisis. Hope Clinic is a shining example of how to have the greatest impact on a community with the contributed dollar."
- ROBERT A. YEAGER
"The agency delivers exactly what its name promises-hope....Through its network of skilled and compassionate staff and volunteers Hope Clinic provides hope to thousands of women by facilitating and affording opportunities, possibilities, guidance and presence during poignant and difficult times in their lives that would otherwise be overwhelming and defeating...Our community would be severely impoverished without this outstanding organization, which provides a tremendous contribution to our social fabric in a fiscally responsible and most efficient manner."

Vice President, St. Thomas Hospital
"Last week I went to the recording studio to hear a final mix of a song called, You Carried Me. I co-wrote the song with a dear friend of mine and it is basically the story of her life. Her birth mother got pregnant at a young age and pushed through the shame of an unplanned pregnancy in order to deliver a healthy baby girl and place her up for adoption....As we sat there and listened to it for the first time I was choking back tears looking at my sweet friend who is now 6 months pregnant with a baby girl. The gift of life is a beautiful thing...I can think of no better place for you to spend some of your money than at a facility that provides medical, emotional, financial and spiritual support to women facing one of the toughest choices of their life."

"In addition to the great work that Hope Clinic does in the community and in our schools, you set yourself apart for the very efficient and cost conscious manner in which you conduct your business. I’ve been to your site twice and still haven’t found the wasted space, nor would I expect to find a wasted dollar spent."

Executive Director, Cal Turner Family Foundation
"As our economic difficulties continue to result in larger numbers of middle class and poor Americans losing access to healthcare, Hope Clinic has continued to serve in such a way as to care for those who seem to be falling through the cracks....Hope Clinic is a safe place where the needy folks of our community can receive high-quality, comprehensive care without regard for race, religion, or economic circumstances."
