In the Fall 2015 edition of Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center’s publication, LIGHTHOUSE BEACON, on top of page 3 there is an item with a photo of our bus ad and this statement:
“Thanks to the generosity of the Life Education Council, exterior and interior bus ads are shining a light on our life-enhancing services this fall. The buses often pass our new center en route from Paterson to Hackensack, Passaic, Newark and Willowbrook Mall.
One woman standing on a corner, unsure of her next step for an unexpected pregnancy, saw the ad as a direct answer to her prayers for help. Through an ultrasound at our Paterson Center, she learned she was well into her second trimester! Please pray that God will continue to guide and provide for this mom and her unborn child.”
I recently attended the Grand Opening of The Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center in Paterson, NJ. There were over 200 people in attendance including clergy from various denominations along with the deputy mayor of Patterson. The facility is a 2600 square foot building refurbished into a complex of 12 rooms dedicated to helping and serving others.
Their Mission Statement:
