This fall, Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center will be offering a new service to the community — a mobile medical unit.

The mobile unit is a customized van which was purchased in partnership with Save the Storks and equipped for a registered nurse to provide pregnancy testing, ultrasound and confidential counseling.

Going mobile allows the center to bring these vital initial services to women right where they are.

The mobile unit will help reach more families in our community and encourage families to participate in the full range of services provided at the center which includes an Earn While You Learn program, parenting instruction and basic baby necessities.

All of these services are provided at no charge and available to everyone regardless of age, race, religion, financial position and marital status.

Also, extensive information on the many other resources in our area will be offered to the families that visit the mobile unit.

Save the Storks partners with pregnancy centers across the country to facilitate the development and success of mobile medical ministries. They have designed a unique, customized, state-of-the-art van for Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center.

The mobile unit has been named Benjamin in memory of baby Benjamin who passed away at birth. Everyone is invited to attend a celebration of the arrival of Benjamin on Wednesday, September 11 between 2 and 4 p.m.

Feel free to drop in any time to tour the mobile unit and a dedication ceremony will be held at 2:45. The celebration will be held at Fayetteville First Baptist Church, located at 205 East Stonewall Avenue in Fayetteville. Look for the balloons and the unit will be located between the Potter and Smith houses.

If you would like more information on the mobile unit and how you can support this worthwhile project visit or call the center at 770-719-2288.
