New Direction needs you to be a Good Samaritan
New Direction Women’s Center, located in Pittsfield, is our local pro-life resources center for women who need some help in choosing life for their unborn child. The center provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parenting classes, miscarriage healing classes, abortion recovery classes, and much more. At its recent fund-raising banquet, speaker Pat Layton compared New Direction and its supporters to the Good Samaritan in the Biblical story. She said many women feel pressured into abortion and are :half-dead” like the injured man o the road to Jericho. New Direction ministers to these women by providing alternatives to abortion, much like the Good Samaritan cared for the injured man. She encourages people to partner with New Direction in serving these women, by donating to help keep the center open. You can be a Good Samaritan by donating. Call 413-347-8005 for more information.
