- Partnering with centres across Canada... we make a difference to them and through them ...
CAPSS was formed in 1997 to provide a Canadian national association dedicated to encouraging, equipping and partnering with local Pregnancy Centres.
We provide leadership development, operational standards, staff and volunteer training along with spiritual encouragement to over 70 affiliated Centres.
We purpose to help assist local pregnancy centres reach and compassionately care for clients facing issues related to unplanned pregnancies, post abortion stress, and sexual health.
Celebrate the Gift of LifeChristmas is the perfect time of year to celebrate the Gift of Life! We have been blessed abundantly - with Christ's love, forgiveness, and salvation. It is also the time of year when we reflect on what has been accomplished because of your support. Thank you for upholding the sanctity of life and supporting the work of CAPSS! You are impacting many lives through your support of this ministry. My passion for this work of establishing, equipping, and encouraging pregnancy centres, continues to be fuelled by the client testimonies I have heard this year at a number of Centre banquets I had the privilege of attending. Here is some of the fruit from your support: • An Aboriginal couple that faced an unplanned pregnancy and placed for adoption. The touching testimony of this birth father who received the support he needed to make good life decisions. He was equipped and encouraged to finish high school; now he wants to become a counsellor and help his people. He also came to know Christ during this impactful journey. • A Chinese immigrant that had no place to live and no hope, for herself or her unborn son. The father had deserted them but the local pregnancy centre stepped in and took care of her immediate needs. • A post-abortive woman that came to know God’s forgiveness; her shame and guilt were replaced with a new found love and peace. Another result of your support is that the number of pregnancy care centres is growing! This last year we have been working with 4 new developing centres in: Dawson Creek, BC; Grand Prairie, AB; Parry Sound, ON; and Woodstock, ON. We have also been in contact with 4 communities that have expressed interest in starting pregnancy care centres in: Creston, BC; Whitecourt, AB; New Liskeard, ON; and St. George, NB. God is at work! Please continue to pray for these centres, boards, and communities. With so much fear and instability in our world today, this message of life is needed more than ever. As Dr. Margaret Sommerville recently stated, “Hope is the oxygen of the human spirit.” CAPSS Centres offer that hope for life and come along side with practical help. We must continue to work towards establishing pregnancy centres in every community across Canada - every community needs a place that offers HOPE and upholds LIFE! Because of Christ’s love and because you make this work possible through your support, there is truly reason to celebrate and give thanks! With much hope, Lola French, Executive Director read more
