NEED HELP WITH A CRISIS PREGNANCY? The Gabriel Project is an ecumenical movement of churches committed to helping women and families in crisis pregnancies. The Sign of Life, with its "800" number hot line, assures any mother that the local church community cares for her and is prepared to offer immediate and practical help with her pregnancy. After calling the toll-free hot line (1-800-264-3565), women are referred to the nearest pro-life pregnancy center. The center then decides whether the mother can benefit from being matched with a church to help her through her pregnancy. For more information or to volunteer, call 301-262-9011. Assistance includes various types of support (prayer, transportation, meals, clothing, baby products), and "shepherding home."
