Why Phillips Neighborhood?

Each year, there are nearly 10,000 abortions in MN. More than one third of MN women having abortions reside in Hennepin County. In addition, nearly 60% of the women seeking abortion in Minnesota already have children. Families are in need and God is calling us to grow.

Our Plan

We have found the location for our new urban pregnancy center near the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Franklin Avenue – the busiest bus stop in the state of Minnesota! New Life’s upcoming 12,600 sq. foot building will house our largest First Care Pregnancy Center as well as a full-service medical clinic (Community Care Clinics of Minnesota) providing family appointments and prenatal care to the community. There will be additional space available to partner with like-minded ministries, helping ensure better collaboration and continuity for our clients.

Nearly 44% of people living in the Phillips community live below the poverty line. New Life Family Services’ program, First Care Pregnancy Center, is in a unique position to be able to fill the gap that exists between the needs of the Phillips community and the lack of life-affirming services. With comprehensive parenting, pregnancy, and family support, we can provide real hope and stability to families in the urban core of our city and make a difference for life.

Our programs will help clients navigate the resources available to them, bring them to a place of stability, and provide their children with a strong foundation.

We believe that our holistic approach will lead to reduced abortions and thriving families.
