C.A.R.E. is a ministry that consists of men and women who are committed to reaching those who have suffered in silence from a past abortion decision or those considering abortion. Our mission is to restore lives that have been wounded by abortion and educate the public regarding the effects of abortion and its impact on men, women and families. As a team we accomplish this goal by providing post-abortion recovery Bible studies, hosting an annual Sanctity of Human Life Celebration and offering quarterly support group meetings.

Few understand what a parent or friend experience when they discover their loved one suffers from same-sex attraction.  Hearing the words “I’m gay” can cause them to feel lost, with their mind reeling with questions.

Many parents of a gay child suffer in silence, afraid to share their story or seek help; the grief process is complicated.  It is helpful to know others have been in the same boat and not only survived, but lived to joyfully discover that their journey served a much greater purpose than they could ever have imagined.

Destined for Freedom is a Christ-centered support group for parents and friends of loved ones struggling with same sex attraction.  We are here to provide friendship, understanding and a listening heart, since each of us have encountered some of the same issues and feelings that you are now experiencing.  Each person is treated with respect, dignity, and confidentiality.
