We started as a small pregnancy center in 1984. This is our story.
Hope Women’s Center was initially founded as a small rural crisis pregnancy center in 1984 by Judy Rothman, an RN, who faithfully ran the Center for over 20 years. The Center earned a positive reputation in Apache Junction and the surrounding communities because of the consistent social services it provided.
In 2013, Hope Women’s Center expanded the ministry to at-risk women and teens by opening additional centers in Coolidge and in Phoenix.
In 2017, Hope Women's Center opened a West Valley location in El Mirage, AZ. A Maricopa location is scheduled to open in 2019!
Hope Women’s Center is a non-profit 501(c) 3 and relies on the support of many civic groups, schools, businesses, small foundations, churches and individuals.
The Center exists to engage, encourage and equip vulnerable women and adolescent girls by providing support for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Over the last several years, the Center has broadened its mission and vision to meet the serious needs and issues that clients are facing in our culture and in our growing and changing community.
Hope Women’s Center provides services to women and teenage girls in any crisis situation. Whether faced with a drug/alcohol addiction, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, unplanned pregnancy, unemployment, homelessness, prostitution, rape, or family conflicts, trained mentors are available for one-on-one mentoring and to provide referrals and resources for our clients. The heart of our ministry is seen in our mentoring and education programs. We seek to build trusting relationships with our clients through ongoing mentoring, through participation in our Education Program, and through other community outreach events. Our four centers see a combined average of 400 clients per month providing them with more than 3,800 hours of service monthly.
Hope Women’s Center is a Christian non-profit ministry. Many area churches support the ministry financially, through prayer and with volunteers.
We recognize that we are not the local church, but an extension of many local bodies of believers. Because of this we are actively seeking local churches to partner with us to receive, disciple and to knit our clients into their church congregations.
We are also actively seeking monthly financial support from our supporting churches, businesses, civic groups and individual donors in order to provide the vital programs and services that the Center offers the community, and to remain a strong, stable voice for the Gospel across Arizona.
