Embrace has been serving the Wichita community since 1985 by offering free pregnancy tests, limited sonograms, STD testing and more! The biggest volunteer need is for men and women to serve as peer counselors for clients experiencing an unexpected pregnancy. Peer counselors share the love of Christ with clients by offering support and resources in their pregnancy decision. This three-hour a week position requires client advocate training, provided by Embrace. For more information see our website or contact Raquel for an application at email@example.com

Become an Advocate
HopeNet Advocates assist us with client care. They help welcome our clients and create a safe environment for each person. They are the first glimpse of hope that a client hears on the phone and the first friendly face the client will see. Advocates volunteer weekly or biweekly during normal business hours. Advocates are interviewed to ensure the role is a good fit.
Our Event Volunteers help us prepare and execute a variety of events throughout the year. The tasks of an Event Volunteer vary and can include greeting, party planning, registration, refreshments, etc. Event Volunteers can participate in all events or just once a year.
Our Special Project Volunteers help with a variety of different small projects throughout the year including office tasks, organizing storage closets, event preparations, holiday meals for clients, etc. These volunteers are scheduled on an as needed basis and generally help once or twice a year.
HopeNet understands the power of prayer in our lives as well as the lives of clients. The Prayer team is made up of devoted prayer warriors that lift HopeNet to the Lord daily.
