Rachel's Vineyard: Healing the pain of abortion - one weekend at a time

Rachel's Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
Rachel's Vineyard can help you find your inner voice. It can help you experience God's love and compassion on a profound level. It creates a place where men and women can share, often for the first time, their deepest feelings about abortion. You are allowed to dismantle troubling secrets in an environment of emotional and spiritual safety.

Rachel's Vineyard is therapy for the soul. Participants, who have been trapped in anger toward themselves or others, experience forgiveness. Peace is found. Lives are restored. A sense of hope and meaning for the future is finally re-discovered.

Life Center of Long Island

Where teen pregnancy and single parent homes are on the rise, it is essential that pregnant women choosing life have access to much needed support services. Our goal here at The Life Center is to empower pregnant and parenting women by providing them with the resources and emotional support needed to take care of themselves and their children and enable them to make healthy decisions for their future. Skilled consultants are available to provide information, guidance, hope, and encouragement to women and men struggling with an unplanned pregnancy.

AAA Pregnancy Options:
AAA Pregnancy Options is the Pregnancy help center run by The Life Center of Long Island. This is the heart of our mission and how we most directly help pregnant women. In addition to addressing the necessary material and financial needs, AAA Pregnancy Options offers free pregnancy test kits and sonograms by a licensed physician. Free intervention consulting is provided to give women complete and accurate information about all the services available to her. It has been our experience that when a woman learns the facts about fetal development, the possible complications resulting from an abortion, and is educated on all the help that is available to her, the majority of the time she will choose to carry her baby to term. Respect for Life, marriage, sexuality, and family, are discussed in a non-judgmental manner.

The Life Center serves all the people of Long Island. Since 1986, a small group of dedicated individuals realized the necessity to help pregnant women in need. Today, we have grown to a pregnancy resource center serving over 250 women each month and assisting 300-400 a month over the telephone. We operate a center in Deer Park, NY, Massapequa, NY and Hempstead NY. Through the many urgent calls received monthly at our Deer Park office, and the over flow of clients in our waiting rooms we recognized a need to open the second location in Massapequa. In November 2006, we opened a location in Hempstead due to the overwhelming need o serving our community better in multi cultural areas. We are also support the Life Center in Ghana, West Africa.

The Life Center is a private, non-sectarian 501© 3 not-for-profit corporation which serves everyone regardless of race, religious affiliation or ethnicity. No one is turned away and there are no charges for our services. Our organization relies on the financial support of our benefactors without whom we could not continue our work. We need your help to continue our mission.

Women For LIFE Catholic Ministry works closely with Life Center of Long Island. We refer women to their facility who think they may be pregnant and in need of their services.
