When a woman in the middle of a crisis pregnancy walks through our doors, she may feel like no one understands her situation. She may feel alone. Our Client Advocates listen without judgment or pressure to help her process information about her pregnancy options, sort through her feelings, and navigate the choices ahead. The decision of how to handle her pregnancy is up to her; but our Client Advocates will equip her to make that decision confidently, with our understanding and support. If you can give four hours per week, we need you! All you need is a desire to reach out in the name of Christ to the hurting and hopeless with a willingness to listen, mentor and pray. Call Judy Spoelman, our Client Services Director, to set up a self-paced advocate training.
One-on-one mentoring young expectant mothers (and fathers) throughout her pregnancy and after, giving tangible support and skills as she earns baby bucks points for supplies such as a crib, car seat, pack-n-play, baby diapers, clothing etc. We have a library of videos and resources for maternal support, pre-natal care, nutrition, parenting, nursing, healthy relationships, and more! We also have advocates for new fathers, where they can earn extra points as well.
A four-hour per week commitment requiring a friendly demeanor and an ability to keep confidentiality is necessary in this position. Since the receptionist is the first person to encounter clients, it requires a heart for the Lord which shines forth in love.
Do you have a skill our clients may need to learn? Teachers are needed for classes such as but not limited to, budgeting, resume’ preparation and dressing for success, basic computer skills, creative child play, men of integrity, nutrition and healthy living. Let God use the skills He has given you to benefit others.

With Muskegon being the 3rd in the state for STD’s, MPS is looking for presenters of our prevention curriculum called Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) to the next generation. This evidenced based curriculum encourages building healthy relationships by making healthy choices and avoiding risky behaviors. With science, facts, and statistics about a person’s well-being it emboldens youth to “being willing to wait” as abstinence as their 100% safe choice and will benefit their physical, mental, emotional health, while goal setting for success. We currently are presenting a 30-minute prevention presentation to youth group, churches, and schools; however, this curriculum could also extend for several class sessions.
