History

From the beginning, our story is one of determination and creativity in our efforts to save women and their children from abortion. We intentionally planted ourselves close to the largest abortion provider in America at our beginning, and have continued to push into hostile territory ever since.

2009 – We opened our first center one block away from the largest abortion provider in the U.S.

2011  – We converted to a medical facility and expanded our services to include ultrasound to better meet the needs of our clients.

2012  – We began our in-school education “Truth Tour” program, offering education to high school health classes about STDs and sexual risk avoidance.

2013  – We added STD testing and treatment to our list of services for our clients.

2014  – We renovated and moved to our current stand-alone facility where our client traffic has doubled.

2016 – We developed a dedicated Education & Resource Department and added Resource Specialists to aid clients with extended services, referrals, and education, to help empower them to make life-affirming choices and get on their feet. 

2017 – We purchased land directly adjacent to the largest abortion provider in the Midwest.    

2018 –  We began a capital campaign for our new clinic and started construction on the building.

2019 – Our new Waterleaf Clinic and Aspire Education and Resource Center openned for business!

2020 – We’d love for you to partner with us as we continue serving women, providing them the resources and support they need to choose life. We’re excited to see where God leads and how he will use YOU to save babies and their mothers from abortion in Illinois!

Please read more about the various services and programs we offer to see how God might lead you to get involved with Waterleaf Women’s Center. You can also donate to our work to help us provide more life-saving resources to abortion-vulnerable women and their babies in Aurora!
