Raffa Clinic was recently honored with the Non-Profit of the Year Award by the Greenville Chamber of Commerce. Thank you so much to the Chamber staff and Board of Directors for this wonderful recognition. Along with the award, we were granted a $3,000 grant to utilize for our patient medical services and educational services.

Thank you all for your support and for continuing to build up Raffa Clinic in the community by sharing the wonderful work that we are able to do. We couldn’t be here without you!

Kirsten’s Choice

It has been said that “nothing changes if nothing changes.” This simple truth can be seen every day at pro-life clinics like Raffa Clinic and also at abortion clinics when former clients walk through  the doors wrestling with yet another agonizing pregnancy decision.

When Kirsten called Raffa Clinic, she already had a very young daughter and was not ready to be a mother again. The father of the baby had left her to fend for herself in the aftermath, dealing with medical issues and the care of an aging family member. The thought of raising a child on her own had seemed like too much work. But ultimately, Kirsten chose life and was learning to make it work. But then the unimaginable happened…Kirsten found out she was pregnant. Again.

When Kirsten called Raffa, she was distraught. Her new partner was pressuring her to have an abortion and she had no idea how she’d ever raise two kids on her own. The Raffa staff person  listened, spoke with compassion, helped her process her thoughts and circumstances. Kirsten and the father of her baby came into our clinic and, after seeing their child for the first time through an ultrasound, CHOSE LIFE. Kirsten poured her thankfulness to the staff for being there during her time of need.

Because of you, Kirsten’s new baby has a future!

North Texas Giving Day lasts all week!!

NTGD-2017-Rectangle-Logo

North Texas Giving Day is back! New for this year, donors can schedule their Giving Day gifts starting September 7th!

Donate through Raffa’s NTGD page between September 7th and September 13th, and your donation will be post on September 14th with over 2,500 donors across North Texas giving to their favorite charities.

WHY SHOULD I DONATE THROUGH GIVING DAY INSTEAD OF DIRECTLY TO RAFFA??

That is a great question! Donors can stretch their dollars further by giving through the NTGD page because the Communities Foundation of North Texas will multiply your gift with bonus funds and prizes to Raffa Clinic! How can you say no to bonus funds??

So today… get up and give. Then share Raffa’s giving link on your social media outlets. Tell others “Why I give…” so that they can see why you (personally) support Raffa Clinic. Encourage your co-workers, your church body, your friends & family to join you in supporting the life-saving work of Raffa Clinic. Our NTGD page has a short video about our organization that you can share with them. (you can watch it too:)

Thank you for supporting Raffa!

Volunteer Nurses Needed!

nurseRaffa Clinic is looking for a few great nurses to join our medical team. We currently have 3 slots open and are needing to fill them asap. Our volunteer nurses (RNs & LVNs) meet with our pregnancy test patients and educate them on their pregnancy, pregnancy options, and prenatal health. NO OB EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! We will train you and equip you with all the info you need to know to serve your patients well. We also offer additional training for RNs to become nurse sonographers trained in limited obstetrical ultrasound. See our job description here volunteer nurse job description.2012.

We have day and evening volunteer hours available and ask for a 4 hour per week time commitment for a minimum of one year. If this is something you are interested in or know someone who might be just right for this opportunity, please contact Michelle at 903-454-9711 or email her at michelle@raffaclinic.org for more information.

Back to School

back to school

Summer is far from over but before long our calendars will turn to fall. For us, this
means ramping up in several areas, not the least of which is that we will likely see
more patients and clients with some serious situations.

New relationships begin in the fall with a new school year. This can lead to more
visits to Raffa Clinic.

Though it is not easy, we are thankful to be here. Those who come in our door need
hope. We have this hope.

Those who come in our door need practical solutions and the assistance to carry
through on a life decision. We provide this, too.

Those who come in our door need a hand to hold onto during a turbulent storm in their
lives. While it can certainly be said that those who need us played a major role in
creating the upheaval, at this moment in our lives we want to help lead them through
the chaos and turbulence, toward a place of healthy decisions and perhaps, a new faith
they’ve never known before.

YOU MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Your support, unseen by those who come in our door,
provides the very foundation for this hope, help…and even healing.

Thank you. Thank you for making a difference in her life, in his life, and in the life of a
little one waiting to be born. You are appreciated and as we look toward fall, we look
ahead to providing more hope — together.

Abstinence Program, Information for Supporters

The “Real Essentials”

college girl with folder

Did you know that Raffa Clinic partners with area schools to educate students and staff on sexual risk avoidance? Our abstinence education program called “Real Essentials”
provides volunteers who present high-quality engaging presentations to area
students in grades 7-12.

This program has been highly effective in local districts in reducing teen pregnancy rates in Hunt County. One local district reported a 75% decrease in their pregnant students over the first 3 years of our programming!

The goal of this program is to prevent the twin epidemics of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. It is about getting adolescents to adulthood with the least amount of emotional baggage and hurt as possible. We are currently presenting in Greenville and Quinlan ISDs for this upcoming year.

We provide this program free to area schools and we ask you to help support this fast growing program. We are currently seeking volunteers to train to be presenters as well as sponsors for this program. If you would like information on volunteering or sponsoring a program, please contact Threesa at 903-454-9751 or threesa@raffaclinic.org.
