Sabrina Coleman introduced the national program in Jonesboro Wednesday, called “Embrace Grace.”
“It is going to bridge a gap between what we do at the Pregnancy Resource Center and connecting young, unmarried girls with area churches,” Coleman, the program’s area coordinator, said.
“This program will give them a support system and help connect them with the community, people who love and care about them,” Coleman said. “What if when girls find out that they are single and they are pregnant, instead of running away from the church, they’ll run to a group of people who will love and support them.”
“Statistics show that over 80% of girls who choose to have an abortion would actually choose life if they could see how they could make that happen if they could see that they had support in place,” she said. “Embrace Grace, it’s exactly what it says. It’s a place they can come and can be loved on.”
“We want to provide a place that once they leave us they have someone to love on them, girls are going to be connected with churches they are going to be connected with other believers, moms to love on them and be a person for them to go to,” she said.
“At the end of the study we are going to have a princess day for the girls, I’m going to bring in people to do their make-up, their hair, their nails,” she said. “We also will have a baby shower for each individual girl so that she starts off life having the basic things that she needs.”
