Hope Pregnancy Center Director Brenda Titus served as guest speaker during the April 25 Noon Exchange Club of Copperas Cove Meeting. Titus thanked the club and said it was a “privilege to partner and do things together to improve our community.” She listed the resources the center offers, which include pre-pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parenting classes, maternity clothes and a baby gift once the baby is born.
“Parents can come once a month to get help with diapers and formula for twelve months,” Titus said
She extended an invitation to club members to “get a better impression of what the center is like” and shared the need for more men to become mentors which requires completing the training program.
“We are still trying to recruit volunteers,” she said. “The men are a vital part of the pregnancy equation.” Following the presentation, Dr. Parker Bogue, board member, had a list of all the items needed to fulfill requests at the center and the club was encouraged to help.
Hope Pregnancy Center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon Friday.
