Since 1983, Pregnancy Aid South Suburbs (PASS) has provided a safe non-judgemental place for women and men in crisis pregnancy situations. Many seeking our services are abortion-minded (they have decided or are close to deciding to have an abortion) or abortion-vulnerable (they have not decided to have an abortion, but an abortion is an option for them). PASS annually ministers to several thousands of women and men in desperate, confusing, and frightful situations.
Our mission is to lovingly stop abortions and compassionately share truth to those who seek our services.
More than crisis pregnancy alone, PASS is a multi-faceted Biblical ministry with staff, advocates, educators, facilitators, and volunteers serving men and women with issues concerning life, relationships, and healing. Linked to our core mission to reduce abortions on Chicago's southwest side are numerous FREE and CONFIDENTIAL ministry aspects that include:
1. PREVENTION: IMPACT abstinence education program (15,000 + students, 55+ schools)
2. INTERVENTION: Pregnancy verification, Limited ultrasounds, Pregnancy options information, Referrals
3. EDUCATION: Abundant Life program (Parenting and life-preparation classes)
4. RESTORATION: Hope & Healing program (Emotional support through group or one-on-one counseling sessions)
PASS is a 501(c)3 Christian non-profit organization and is 100% funded by private donations with centers in Tinley Park, South Holland, and Lansing, Illinois.
Thank you for joining us in following Jesus to save lives and change culture...one heart at a time.
