Slidell.jpg To the left is a photo of the Slidell, LA, pregnancy resource center, sent to me by Cindy Collins, its executive director. She writes:
Our CPC has been serving the Slidell and surrounding area for 20 years. We averaged between 100 to 160 clients per month… over 20,000 since 1986… over 8500 babies born.
Slidell is a suburb of New Orleans that sits on 3 interstates – and Lake Pontchartrain.
Many of our volunteer staff has also been displaced. Their work throughout the years has been a sacrifice of love. Please let your email list know that it is not only the CPC facilities and services that have been effected, it is also the staff and volunteers, many who have supported the work of the CPCs over the years. Homes and businesses where washed away and family members displaced.

Cindy asks for our prayers and thanks us for our help.
Speaking of thanks, I’d like to thank Jerry for volunteering to go with the semi truck today to Louisiana.
Many of you have also written to help. As the hurricane dust begins to settle, following are the pregnancy resource center immediate volunteer needs in the Baton Rouge prc disaster relief organizational center.
If possible, please plan to stay for at least two weeks, although one week is ok. Volunteers will be needed to fill these posts for at least the next couple of months:
~ Disaster relief receptionist to field emails, calls
~ Webmaster, proficient in Flash, to keep up with website/Internet needs and problems
~ Disaster relief prc volunteers coordinator
~ Disaster relief clerical/secretarial help
~ Disaster relief warehouse distribution/inventory administrator
All the aforementioned positions require good organizational skills, particularly since you will be creating something from nothing. Please email me if interested, along with your available dates. Volunteers for these positions are needed beginning NOW.
Also, housing in Baton Rouge is needed for these volunteers. Please email me if you can provide a room.
Thanks very much.
