When a New Iberia nonprofit was in need, a local business stepped in to help.
All morning, Daniel Green, his sons, and their tree removal service worked to remove trees that were causing leaks in the building behind the center.
“At this point we are in the process of purchasing that house and hopefully in time it will become a mothers house,” says John Manes with the Unexpected Pregnancy Center in New Iberia.
The home would provide shelter for expecting mothers throughout New Iberia. “The services we provide are pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, we also do counseling with the moms. We help them through the pregnancy and beyond. Anything that the mom needs we will attempt to either provide for them, or get them assistance from someone else,” says Manes.
“I thought ,what a better thing to do then help? All of the workers here at the pregnancy center are volunteers,” Green said.
The center has only been open since July and Manes said its helped more than 30 expecting mothers. For more information on the services visit their Facebook page here.
