A new beginning. The place or time when something commences. A clean slate and a fresh start. A new beginning at the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre (CAPCC) means the onset of a new story for the men, women, and families we serve. Perhaps it's the unexpected birth of a baby and the start of a parenting journey. Or it is the healing that comes after the loss of a child through miscarriage, adoption, or abortion. A new beginning might mean restoration from past sexual abuse and trauma or the opportunity to live in a safe and nurturing home in our Maternity Home Program. Sometimes a new beginning is discovered simply by having someone to talk to who shows compassion and acceptance. A new beginning means hope for the future.
For the CAPCC, new beginnings have also meant dreaming aloud and creating a new vision for the Centre. This includes re-discovering our values as a team of staff and board members that guide and motivate everything we do. At the CAPCC, we value:
Relationships | Putting those we serve at the heart of all we do
Respect | Honoring and valuing others in both words and actions
Compassion | Genuine care and heartfelt concern for those we serve
Dignity | The right of a person to be valued and respected for their own sake
Excellence | Professional competence and responsible stewardship resources
I so wish I had come to the Centre when I found out I was pregnant! Instead, I let others lead me to believe that abortion would be the best solution. From the second I did it, I knew it was a mistake and I was filled with regret and shame. The ladies there have helped me to grieve in a better way and now I am making better choices. They taught me about what a healthy relationship looks like and are continuing to work with me while I learn to set better boundaries with people. I think they are going to help me get back to school. Maybe someday I will be able to help people the way they have helped me.” ~ CAPCC Client

Rocky Mountain House Dessert Evening Fundraiser
Our new beginning in Rocky Mountain House started with moving to a larger office location to serve our community better. This move will open doors for the men, women, and families seeking unconditional love and support. In celebration, there will be a grand opening of our new office space (date TBA) and our annual Dessert Evening Fundraiser on Thursday, December 2, 2021. Registration will be available on our website. Stay tuned!
Olds Fundraising Banquet
Watch for details on our Olds Fundraising Banquet on March 3, 2022, at Olds College. Registration details will be available on our website and social media pages.
In Stettler, the new beginning means actively looking for a physical location to open our new centre! Stay tuned for details on the grand opening celebration and community fundraising event.
Our office in Drumheller has settled nicely into their new office space. To celebrate, the community gathered for the Grand Opening on July 16 and the Summer in the Plaza event on July 22. We are so thankful for the support and generosity of the local community!
We need you! Did you know that the CAPCC utilizes nearly 12,000 volunteer hours annually? We want to add more volunteers and have various opportunities available at each office location and in our Maternity Home. If you want to give back to your community and make a difference, we'd love to hear from you. Contact us at email@example.com or visit our website to learn more.
BOARD MEMBERS NEEDED
The CAPCC is recruiting individuals to join our board of directors. As a governance board, members establish the organization's values, vision, and mission, provide future-focused leadership, and oversees all operations without focusing on the day-to-day details.
