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 first stand-alone facility where our client traffic 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 opened for business!
2020 -We remained open and successfully continued to support women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy along with STD testing and treatment during the worldwide Covid 19 pandemic, seeing a 35% increase in patients during this time.
2021: We joined the Heartbeat International Abortion Pill Rescue Network providing a supportive alternative to women who would like to reverse their chemical abortion after taking the first pill, mifepristone (RU-486).
Please partner with us as we continue serving women and men, 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 and fathers from abortion in Illinois!
